Global Action Days

It’s that time of the year again. Time to act and help the environment! The Global Action Days is a campaign by the Foundation for Environmental Education to activate students and teachers to lead the change for a more sustainable world by getting involved in fun-filled, informative, activities. Participating in constructive, meaningful actions helps young people to see the point of being involved, and aids their understanding of what they can do themselves to help the environment. It’s all very simple. Plan your action, document the action by taking pictures, making a video or writing an article, register your school online and SHARE with the rest of the world on our Global Action Days Facebook page in the week of 9-15 November 2015. The chosen theme for Global Days of Action 2015 is Climate Change because of the Climate Conference known as COP21 which takes place in Paris later this year. The conference is about all governments agreeing to a deal to significantly reduce man-made Climate Change. As Climate Change is such a huge topic, FEE believes it is the ideal theme to focus on in 2015. All information on how to join this action can be found on www.ecoschools.global/global-action-days #globalactiondays #FEE #EcoSchools The Global Action Booklet is also available here.

Healthy Eating Day

Our secondary school decided to hold a healthy eating day in which girls were provided with all sorts of healthy food.  They were given information about healthy diets and ways of life.  They were shown the difference eating healthy or unhealthy food made to their looks, figure and overall well being. As the young ladies in our senior schools get older they tend to start thinking more about their figure, however, they seem to find it difficult to do away with sweets and junk foods.  Our school decided to give these girls an exemplary day of eating where lots of different healthy foods were available for the girls to choose from.  The foods were also presented in different ways so as to show the students that they may like it if presented differently.  We can safely say it was a great success as the girls tried out the different foods, many of them new to them.  A good change from junk foods and sweets! Get those taste buds working! Girls helped to prepare the food and serve it out too. Mmmmm! What’s this? Do I prefer this to junk food? Must think of the future!!

Cereal Day – Health and well-being

Cereal day is a Healthy activity organised once per term to all students. Throughout the scholastic year, class teachers emphasise the need of having breakfast cereal as a major source of nutrition for children as many of them get most of their vitamins and other nutrients from fortified breakfast cereals and fruit drinks. Thus, our school organize a ‘Healthy Cereal Day’ for our students once in every term where during lunch time a packet of cereal and a glass of milk is given to each student. Besides having healthy food, children enjoy this activity as all of them will have the same food for their lunch. Eating cereal at school…
