<Organic Farm Project>
On April 19th, 40 MYP students joined the Organic Farm Project. After visiting the greenhouses, students got a general idea of how the plants grow and what types of plants can grow in the northeast of China.
After visiting the farm, they had the task of planting small pepper seedlings.
experiencing the whole process of planting, students learned that
growing plants was not as easy as they had thought it would be. They
also came to realize the importance of treasuring food and protecting
all species in the world.
On Earth Day this year, our MYP and DP students planted trees in Shuangyang District. Green is the most beautiful color on the earth.
This was our 3rd
year planting trees. Although with different students each year, the
concept of making service and taking action is always the same.
<Jingyue Park Hiking>
Raising awareness about protecting the environment is also an important part of the Earth Day plan. Students who live in the city have less chance to get close to nature, so we asked the students to hike in the Jingyue Park, which is a great opportunity for them to feel nature and embrace the green.
This year marks the 50th Earth
Day in the world. There are thousands of ways to protect the earth, but
we believe teaching is one of them, which can deeply change the
teenagers’ minds from generation to generation. We encourage our
students to be involved in global issues and take action to make our
community and the earth better and better.
We have only one Earth. Change begins with us!
