Sep 2015 – Environment Picnic Day
Our Environment Day started with a bike ride towards teacher Vey’s community. Kosorl, teacher Vey and the students had fun riding along the dusty road which took them to an area where many trees grow. Here Kosorl explained to the kids the importance of saving the trees, the effects of climate change caused by cutting down the trees and what can be done to protect the environment. The children understood the lesson and promised to look after their land and to spread the message to their parents and older people in the village. After a picnic lunch out in the natural countryside, small trees were planted by everyone to make the area more beautiful and to replace some of the trees which had been cut down. This is an important lesson for the children to learn and will be an ongoing project for the future.
