About a month ago, the eighth graders at the CDSC started
brainstorming ideas about how to be more environment-friendly. After
learning about rubbish centres in chemistry class, the idea of recycling was
grade students show off the different garbage cans and baskets.
We decided to place different colored garbage cans all
over the campus, that the separation of trash would be convenient for
everyone and as it is done in many European countries for quite some years.
For example, the red garbage cans represent plastic and the black ones
represent miscellaneous trash.
Furthermore, we placed shelves in every classroom for
stacking up paper, cardboard and newspapers. All recyclable things will be
picked up from our school once a month.
Besides that, we have even built a compost box. Now it is
the eighth graderís responsibility to dump all the biomass into the
compost box once a week.
We also have to make sure that everything works properly.
In addition, we presented our rubbish project to the whole school with a
PowerPoint Presentation, a skit and by handing out flyers.
We strongly believe that learning rubbish separation at
school is a great idea and more schools should do the same, especially in
Thailand. We hope that we can set a good example as even though this long
term project just started, everyone notices the differences.
Our school became even cleaner and it is a very enjoyable atmosphere to
be in. Should others students and schools be interested in this project we
are more than happy to invite anybody and show them the results.
