Mutfaktan çıkan çiğ sebze ve meyve atıkları ASLA 🙅‍♀️ çöp değildir! Biz okulumuzun mutfağından çıkan bu atıkları yeniden toprağa kavuşturmak için kompost ♻️ yapmaya başladık bile. Bu hafta 5 bidonumuzu da hergün çıkan atıklarla doldurduk. 🤯 En önemlisi, bidonumuzda karbon ve azot dengesini tutturabilmek için çiğ atıklara saman, kuru dal, 🍂 çim, vb bahçe atıklarını da eklemek gerekiyor, böylece doğal gübremiz yavaş yavaş oluşmaya başlayacak. Takipte kalın😉
••••• Raw vegetable and fruit waste produced from the kitchen is NEVER 🙅‍♀️ garbage! We have already started making our compost ♻️ from the waste that is left in our school’s kitchen. This week, we filled all 5 bins with these wastes. 🤯 Most importantly, in order to keep the carbon and nitrogen balance in our bin, it is necessary to add straw, dry branches, 🍂grass, and other garden wastes to the raw waste, so that our natural fertilizer will begin to form gradually. Stay tuned 😉 isikkent_egitim_kampusu

Our students really do inspire us everyday with their ability to think of ways they can create a powerful impact in the world and effect change.

Taylor, Dani, Amelie, Sophie and Tyla have entered into the Global Goals Social Leaders competition.

Their goal - to make dance inclusive for everyone so they can experience the health benefits and reduce the impact stereotyping can bring.

They will be holding dance workshops for students in Year 7-10 so they can also be a part of this global project in this art form.

On March 1st, I stepped up to the challenge and embarked on helping young people in my community develop an entrepreneurial mindset for them to develop skills and abilities to build a better life amidst adversity. Bonteheuwel is one township in a collective of poor townships known as the Cape Flats. Kids born in these townships face numerous difficulties and generally have low-self esteem due to being born poor, witnessing traumatic events in their streets and being raised in broken/dysfunctional homes.

My independent challenge had one goal in mind: Give young people the tool to build a better life amidst adversity and escape poverty for themselves and generations to follow them.

To achieve my goal, I ran a workshop at Arcadia Primary School in Bonteheuwel, teaching kids in Grades 4-7 the Art & Science of Entrepreneurship over the course of two weeks. The first half of the program (week 1) encouraged learners to think creatively, combat setbacks and be more curious in their pursuit to solve problems. The second half of the program (week 2) focused primarily on goal-setting and planning with the help of WOOP (a science-based mental strategy that people can use to find and fulfil their wishes, set preferences, and change their habits).

At the end of the program, learners had a better sense of direction and were able to identify problems in their community they could solve through entrepreneurial thinking. They also felt more comfortable setting goals and had more confidence in their capabilities.

We should encourage creative thinking & curiosity in young people and equip them with the tools to combat setbacks. If we can build a strong foundation for young people to pursue a life in entrepreneurship, or even just encourage entrepreneurial thinking, we will be building a generation that will bring an end to poverty.

ICS' second team participating in the globalsocialleaders Competition are working on a project aimed to improve the quality of education for special needs children in Na’ur by ensuring that the children have access to a well-furnished and sustainable learning support centre.

They aim to host a workshop with ICS’s own learning support department to improve the quality of education by educating the teachers further on the different disabilities and how to recognize and treat them best.

Great work ICS student leaders, we can't wait to see your work! To learn more about global social leaders and their world around the world, visit their site: www.globalsocialleaders.com/ggcompetition/
