Red Day Eco-friendly Celebrations at school – by Julia Gatt Taliana – EkoSkola Secretary
On Friday 12th February 2021, at school we celebrated ‘Red Day’ in preparation for Valentine’s Day. The Pupil Council teamed up with the EkoSkola Committee at St Joseph Junior School Sliema. A poster to inform parents and children about this event was also done and shared on the school’s social media page and on Klikks.
Before the activity:
The Ekoskola committee brainstormed and put together a list of love-themed ideas which are eco-friendly. We thought of crafts that will be done using recycling materials and upcycled them. We shared our ideas on the Ekoskola channel via MS Teams. This list was put together and shared with all teachers.
Activities held on the day:
We all came to school wearing red clothes. We all love making crafts and we love to take care of our environment, so today we carried out Love-themed crafts in class. All the classes at our school chose their favourite eco-friendly crafts and did them in class to celebrate the day. This list was also sent home for the weekend for children to try some of them during the midterm holidays. We did not create more litter because ‘Material Matters’ and we re-used litter to create new decorative items.
These are some of the Eco-friendly crafts we did:
IT WAS A FUN DAY WHERE WE CELEBRATED LOVE FOR ONE ANOTHER AND OUR ENVIRONMENT ♥
