This week in the Primary School
Welcome back everyone after the ‘spring break’! I hope your family feels refreshed after a break from school routines.
This week we have held our annual Eco Week when we have been guided by Student Council concerns and initiatives, as well as the focus for this year’s “Global Challenge”. The children felt that daily challenges would be a good way to help us understand the United Nation’s global goals chosen for our learning this year.
So, on Wednesday we turned off the lights and made use of the natural light coming through the windows. On Thursday we were challenged to reduce our waste (less paper and food waste in the bin). On Friday we were encouraged not to use the elevators and our food was vegetarian.
Also on Friday we held a mufti day to raise money for bins outside the school’s perimeter for our global challenge this year to reduce litter in Ho Chi Minh City, starting with the school’s immediate environment.

As ever the children were very passionate about their concerns for our local and world-wide environment and we hope that this week has helped to develop their understanding of global goals 11 and 12 at an appropriate level for their age.
