On Sunday, September 24th, Primary students took part in the Green Exchange at Hanoi Agriculture University. It was a great opportunity for students to play in a green space while learning to protect the environment.
Students from Eco Club have been collecting recyclable paper in every class from the beginning of the term. BVIS then brought all 100kg of paper to the Green Exchange. We had 25 families also attend. It was uplifting to see our Year 5 and 6 students, along with their parents, carrying papers and carefully selecting the plants they will take care of during the term. They chose roses, daisies, strawberries, cactus, spider plants, amongst others. Many of these plants will be looked after in our community garden in Primary, along with other herbs and vegetables which Eco club students will be planting next week.
Beside the paper-plant exchange, I was happy to see our students also participate in the drawing competition at the event. The “Eco Hero” drawing theme encouraged students to think of the little things they can do every day to help protect the environment. I would like to send congratulations to Ngoc Khoa 6B and Bao Trang 5S for winning the overall competition. A great result at the end of a great day!
