GreenR Minds club: raising awareness for young local students on plastic waste

Our community service programme here at the British International School, Ho Chi Minh City focuses on education for our community partners rather than simply fundraising. Greenr Minds is an excellent example of this.

On the 31st of October, Year 3 pupils from our Community Partner Huynh Van Ngoi Government School had a one hour visit to room 120 in the Secondary Campus to learn about plastic waste.

This event was part of the project by GreenR Minds, an environmental co-curricular activity (CCA) that takes place every Wednesday afternoon, to raise awareness for young local students on plastic waste, one of the major environmental issues currently facing the global community.

The lesson consisted of a presentation that discussed the current situation in Vietnam and across the world regarding plastic usage and its impact on the environment, especially the ocean. We suggested a number of solutions that the pupils could easily carry out, such as asking for no straws in restaurants and carrying reusable water bottles. The presentation was followed by a short Kahoot quiz based on the information from the presentation.

After the Huynh Van Ngoi students left, the students involved in the event expressed their opinion on the lesson. Soo Min Ryu, a Year 10 student, described the experience as ‘chaotic’, and had further indicated that although she felt that the students were not able to learn all the information that was prepared, it was clear that ‘the kids were having fun’, a remark agreed upon by other members of the CCA.

Yu Gyeong Kang and So Young Park, the leaders of the CCA, agreed that although there were some slight issues with technology and communication during the lesson, they remained confident that the upcoming lessons in the following weeks would be much more refined and efficient.

GreenR Minds is planning to provide more lessons to other students from the Huynh Van Ngoi school to meet its initial goal of having 4 lessons in total and teaching over 100 individuals on the topic.
