Five students from the EkoSkola committee together with the school’s link teachers attended the FEE fest which is practically a fair displaying all services and opportunities as regards Education for sustainable developemnt under one roof as coordinated by Nature Trust FEE Malta. The students attended interactive sessions, learned about Fair Trade amongst other things and visited various stands. Moreover, our school was awarded funding from HSBC Malta Water Programme to support the committee’s plans for the Water Explorer project.
Well done to Year 8 Owls for their research on the Carob Pod.
On Friday 24th the Ekoskola Committee together with all year 8 students showcased their work on the carob tree during an Open Day.
The attendees had the opportunity to taste the carob cake and banana carob smoothie. An informative leaflet about the carob tree together with six recipes using this local resources was launched on the day.
Yet this is not the conclusion… the Litter Less campaign will continue, as will also continue work on the LEAF project.
EkoSkola committee members and some year 8 students had a cooking session where the main ingredient used was the carob powder. The students baked carob cakes, cut and froze bananas for smoothies and filled glass jars with carob cake mix.
Year 8 students busy with their research on the carob tree as part of this year’s LEAF (Learning About Forests) investigation. Some of the students had to bring their own device at school to learn more about the carob pod. They are to display and present their work during an exhibition and an Open Day organised by the EkoSkola Committee. Well done and good luck!!
EkoSkola Committee members and year 8 students were busy this week preparing carob syrup and carob powder as part of the We Eat Responsibly project combined with this year’s LEAF investigation and the Litter Less Campaign. A long process spread over 3 days which resulted in great enthusiasm and satisfaction. The students weighed carobs, measured water, prepared herbs to add to the syrup, washed glass jars they themselves brought at school, put syrup in glass jars, removed seeds from carob pods and grinded carob pods into powder. These products will be used during an Open Day in mid-November. More details will follow.
