Building a partnership with a paper recycling company
In Pre-Primary Schools, young children (aged between 5-6 years old) make a great use of paper in order to make their drawings or handicrafts. In that perspective, we decided to familiarize our pupils with the operation of a paper recycling company. Hence, during the school year, our children will collect useless paper that cannot be used for their drawings and take them to the paper recycling company in their town. In that way, they will learn and contribute to the phases of recycling and protect their environment.
