Global Action Days in Basic School Fernando Caldeira (Águeda, Portugal)
In the auditorium of the Basic School Fernando Caldeira a protocolary session to mark the important occasion of the Raising of the 7th Eco Schools Green Flag took place on 11th November – a recognition of the work developed throughout the last school year and our concern about the Earth sustainability and the quality of life. We had the participation of class representatives, class directors, department coordinators, eco-schools council, the school direction and the vice-president of the town hall (our partner). After this ceremony all the school community (students, teachers and staff) gathered at the school gate to hoist this important flag. About two hundred green and white balloons with “green” messages written in tree leaves were released up in the air.
This award of the Blue Flag Association of Europe is the recognition of the work and effort of the whole educational community and demonstration of the importance we give to the practices of environmental protection.
This day everyone was asked to wear a green garment and to bring a small broken household appliance from their homes, and participate, with this gesture, in the Global Action Days initiative, this important international project of the Foundation for Environmental Education to make students and teachers work for a more sustainable world.
Integrated in the Action Plan, the House of the Environment of ERSUC (a solid waste company) came to our school from 7th to 11th November to motivate the school community for the good eco-practices.
Some small students and their teacher are building a Hydroponics (art of growing plants without soil) Kit.
Next to Christmas time some students will organize a solidarity campaign “Give with a Smile” (as in last years) of collection of goods to promote citizenship and develop values such as sharing and friendship. The whole school community will be invited to participate, offering toys, books, clothing and shoes to those who need it most, making them smile this Christmas. The 5R concept will, once more, be used (reduce, reuse, recycle, make responsible and respect). A.G.
