When many are forsaking the environment, the time has come for us to take a serious look at our actions and Uniworld International School has geared up and established themselves under the Eco-School Programme initiated by the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) recently.
Kerry Asia Pacific came into the picture by assisting the school to achieve a recognisable International Green Flag award by mentoring the participants for a long-term collaboration in several activities such as tree planting, safety awareness, and more.
“It is our call to save the earth and it is something that we have to teach our students at a young age for the future generation. Instead of applying the 3R concept, we will now instill 5Rs which are rethink, recycle, reuse, reduce and make it as everyone’s responsibility,” said Uniworld International School Principal, K. Murugasu during the launch programme.
Murugasu mentioned that several students will take full participation towards the success of the programme with an hour dedicated for After School Activity (ASA) by executing daily activities such as recycle sales, watering plants and more for a small start.
Kerry Asia Pacific Continuous Improvement Manager, Prabageran Thiagarayah said five members of the corporation will conduct a monthly visit and monitor the school’s Eco Club activities which initiated with planting 50 different trees and herbs in the eco-garden school compound, followed by an introduction to decomposition process and fertiliser production in future.
