Working for you in Green Education
Green education. Curriculum covering water, energy, and waste management, recycling, animals, sustainable development, and more was taught in preschools and schools. Pupils conducted surveys, wrote research papers and toured different sites throughout the country, namely a plant, quarry, and Nesher plant. Similarly, pupils participated in municipal clean up days and in cultivating and preserving public parks near schools.
So small, yet so green. Aviv, Amihai, Gilboa, Arazim and Savion preschools received a ‘Green Preschool’ label certification awarded by the Ministry of Education and the Ministry of Environment. The judging committee was impressed by the ecological garden in the playground, the water and energy management activities, separating waste for recycling, parental involvement in environmental endeavor, and mainly by the wonderful children who demonstrated extensive environmental knowledge.
