We recently had a Recycling and Sustainability Workshop with three other schools! The kids were able to speak with other students about what they have been learning in school about environmental awareness. We had the Ministry of Environment out to make a speech and did many activities that were based around recycling, It was a wonderful learning experience for all who were there!

Recycled Plastic Trash Building Project
We are building a weatherproof work-space and storage unit for our glass productions. We have been getting villagers on board to help make plastic bottle bricks (plastic bottles filled with plastic garbage). Many have been helping and cleaning their living spaces to make the bricks. We paid them 100 riel per brick and it motivated many! We handed out flyers and have held classes on the importance of proper waste management. We teach about trash polluting water, burning plastic polluting air and the dangers of eating animals that have been eating plastic waste, thrown around the fields.
It was wonderful to have so many people come together to help, with trash clean ups and brick making. We are truly making a statement in the village and encouraging others to use the techniques.
New Books and Lice Protection\Prevention with Rachel Sutherland!! Our Educational Director has visited to bring new resources, teaching methods, songs and learning games! The kids were so happy to see her again!
Our Recycled Glass Productions
We bought reusable cups that the students can use when food carts come by the school. We are teaching about reducing the amount of plastic waste we are creating.
