GREEN UNIT UPDATES 

 

  • Year of Nature 
  • Students and staff are already working on projects related to Nature. Please encourage your children to stop bringing to school or using any disposable plastic bottles, containers, bags etc. Instead, promote reusable water bottles or lunch boxes and packaging that are environmentally friendly.   
    • Children will be asked to bring plants to school; we are also looking at the possibility to plant in the garden, each class could have their own space and look after their plants. 
    • Assemblies, tutorials , PSHE lessons provide a great opportunity to have group activities. Raising awareness is our main objective. 
    • In this letter you will find links to videos & TED talks on Nature, however I personally think it will be great to work with the  students on our very own video on this topic. 
  • Tough truths about plastic pollution 
  • What really happens to the plastic you throw away
  • Save our world 
  • Values in Education – Respect 
    • Respect, as agreed before the summer holiday, will be the first value introduced this year to all KES students. I included a link that will help you understand how the value of respect can be incorporated in curriculum & daily activities. 
  • Values in Education – Respect 
  • Chromebooks for new students 

New students will have a session of training on how to use chromebooks. Parents are invited to attend our technology workshop on Tuesday 24th September.
