After a busy first half term of the school year, this is an update from the eco committee. Both primary and secondary held water bottle competitions to encourage students to bring in and use reusable water bottles. This not only cuts down on the number of paper cups we use but also has the benefit of students not leaving lessons to drink water. In secondary 7.1 were the undisputed champions with over 75% bringing in water bottles over the 2 week period. And the prize…… a pizza lunch at Trattoria no.5.

Hi, we are students from 7.1 and we won a challenge and we had about 70% so our class went to the Pizza restaurant on lunch and it was amazing, we ate so much pizza and drank lemonade, I wish we could do it more often! I really enjoy it!
Well-done to 7.1. Meanwhile, the tension grows in primary as they wait to hear who their winners are.
Last week we had a visit from Mrs Victoria Radchenko, the eco-schools coordinator for all of Ukraine. Primary and secondary came together for the meeting and we had a lively discussion with Mrs Radchenko coming up with new ideas and plans that we could develop to make BISU more environmentally aware and responsible. Mrs Radchenko also told us it was valuable for the younger generation to talk to the older generation about the environment, they can tell many stories, for example about how our climate is changing. Grandparents are warned, you may find yourselves being interviewed in the coming weeks! Mrs Radchenko also awarded the school with our new certificate as a member of the eco-schools.
