lunches to re­duce daily waste. Char­lotte Baker, the teacher who or­ches­trated Eco Week, hopes that the zero-waste pic­nic will have far-reach­ing ef­fects on the school com­mu­nity.

“The eco-com­mit­tee will use this event as a spring­board to move to­wards a more sus­tain­able can­teen and try to have more zero-waste lunches and events,” said Baker.

By cre­at­ing an en­joy­able en­vi­ron­ment such as this, TISPC be­lieves that learn­ing does not only hap­pen in the class­room but also in var­i­ous range of ac­tiv­i­ties.

The Big Idea com­pe­ti­tion en­cour­ages stu­dents to form opinions, crit­i­cal think­ing for prob­lem solv­ing for the en­vi­ron­ment. Most stu­dents chipped in with their ideas for eco-aware­ness through creative video, art or film pre­sen­ta­tions.

The suc­cess of Eco Week is a tes­ta­ment to how peo­ple can ac­tu­ally make a dif­fer­ence in cli­mate change by work­ing to­gether col­lec­tively. While TISPC con­tin­ues this ef­fort within the school en­vi­ron­ment, Baker be­lieves that par­ents should also play a role at home.

“Eco-friend­li­ness must be­come a way of life and in or­der to be in­spired, stu­dents should re­ceive the same mes­sage at home and school,” said Baker. She also hopes to work with par­ents who are pas­sion­ate about de­liv­er­ing a change.

Stu­dents or­gan­ised a zero-waste pic­nic and do­nated pot­ted plants as part of the ac­tiv­i­ties dur­ing the school's Eco Week.
