They came to school with their parents at 5:00 PM full of energy and enthusiasm asking me: Where are our friends now? Can we tell them everything we did concerning recycling? What do you think they will ask us? This is how KSPS students prepared and got ready for their video conference with their peers of IEARN project entitled YouthCan who were at the National Museum in New York. Students exchanged knowledge and experience about activities done to protect the environment.
After that, our students wrote their feedback about this experience as follows:
Makassed KSPS Students in a Video Conference on PhotoPeach
Rasha Sokar: My name is Rasha, I am really happy because I am in Makassed Khalil Shehab School. I am in the third grade. Today in the school we talked to other students from foreign countries. We talked about pollution, earth and planting. As for pollution, it’s important not to throw garbage only in baskets. As for earth, we shouldn’t smoke to keep a healthy and fresh air. Regarding planting, we planted in our classrooms, so each one of us has a plant to care for. Thank you our school. Thank you Mrs. Rana, Rasha and all.
Salma Abdullah: I’m Salma, I am a fifth grader. In April 29, 2013 I participated in the YouthCan Project. My friends and I talked to some students in New York about green activities both of us did. It is a wonderful feeling to communicate with students around the world!!! Especially when we share our concerns about clean and green environment to create a better future!
Ghida Itani: It was Monday, we came back to school at 5 o’clock. We talked on Skype with other students from New York City and spoke with them about our visit to Baabda's forest and what we did there. They asked us about how we can protect the environment, so my friend Marwa and I answered them. It was a nice and beautiful day.
Ahmad Melhem: It was a nice day, we came to school at 5:00 P.M, and talked with other American students via Skype. We told them about the visit to Baabda's reserve and how to protect our environment. They asked us questions and we answered them. It was an amazing day that we wouldn’t have missed.
Marwa Kahaf: Communicating with each other is very nice, because we get to know one another especially when we communicated with students from New York on Monday at 5:00 P.M.
