Members of Ekoskola at the National Sports School, led by their President Rylee Borg, organised a recycling project. Using old cardboard boxes and paper sacks – items that would normally be thrown away – they made a beautiful crib for each class. Many students took part in this repurposing project. A big well done to all the participants!
These last few years, the members of Ekoskola and their president Rylee Borg, have regularly planted trees around the school, among which were a number of olive trees. These trees recently produced a good crop of olives. The Ekoskola members gathered the crop and set about preserving it in the time-honoured tradition of brining. When the olives are completely pickled, in about six weeks, they will be used by the tuck shop in the preparation of school lunches. A big well done to the Ekoskola students.
