Our students in Secondary joined the recycling and awareness activities to celebrate Earth Day, on the 22nd of April. This is a day established by the United Nations to remind us that the planet and its ecosystems provide us all with ways of making a living and life itself.
The day provided our students with the opportunity to speak about and debate the problems facing the Earth and the need to find a just balance between economic, social and environmental requirements, for today's as well as for future generations.
This year, Earth Day had the theme of “Environmental and Climate Education” so as to emphasis the importance of education as a fundamental building block for progress. And also to highlight urgency so that citizens are fully conscious of the threats facing the planet and the need to take actions to defend the environment.
