Today, Thursday 30th August, 2018 we conducted our first Public School Healthy Environment Training since January this year. This time, 20 students from SDN 1 Benoa and 2 teachers were learning about healthy environment approach at our Zero Waste to Oceans – Community Environment and Skills Center. These students will add our impacts into 6583 since we first started this program.
After opening at 9 am sharp in our amphitheater and discussed about why they should care about environment, we began the tour. First station is waste separation station where they taught about how to classify waste and what kind of recyclable and non-recyclable waste through song and practical approach. After that students were making compost.
The result of compost were shown on Seed Bank and Seedlings. Here, the students learnt to create seedlings, seed balls, and how to take care of plant nursery. Most of the students were bright and eager to learn. After that they had a fun by playing a seed balls and learnt about the type of plants name.
Moving up to the next station, the students learnt the core information about natural dyes, weaving, and how to do soap upcycle. All of the students were inquisitives and happy to learnt something that they didn’t have a chance to learn it at school.
After the satisfying refreshments and drink with our lemongrass tea harvested from our own garden, we took photograph together and made a vow to keep Bali healthy and clean!
