Eco Week at O Castro British International School: a week dedicated to water

The celebration of Globeducate's Eco Week has once again become a fundamental event to raise awareness among students and the entire school community about the importance of living a more sustainable life and taking care of the wonderful planet we live in. An initiative that has united the group's more than 60 schools in a common cause: to educate in environmental protection and awareness. 

This year it has been dedicated to water, a vital resource that perhaps sometimes we do not value enough or take for granted. For this reason, we presented the students an UNICEF exhibition that allowed them to learn and debate about the Sustainable Development Goals and the water crisis that some countries are experiencing, as well as the different living conditions and the use of water in families around the world.  

These activities have allowed them to learn about concrete measures that can be taken both at school and in their own homes, as well as the importance of responsible consumption. Among other initiatives taken, students from the Eco Committee have checked, measured and investigated the school's taps and fountains to ensure that everything is working perfectly.  

Pollution of the marine environment has played a key role, so once again this year the whole community has been encouraged to reduce and reuse through Litter Free Wednesday. Pupils designed their own sustainable snacks and created posters which they stuck on litter bins to remind the community not to use single-use plastics.   

This major event coincided with the celebration of World Poetry Day, so the whole Early Years and Primary school dedicated each day to a poem, the theme of which inspired the students to take action and protect water as an essential resource for life.  

The week ended with a silent march led by the students, each deciding their individual commitment to water. These activities will be followed up by the fantastic "Drops" race that we will be running in collaboration with Unicef in the third term. Stay tuned for more information!
