Online Sustainable Development Goals Festival at Dingli Primary School

An online SDG Festival for all parents and guardians, was held on 30th April 2021 at Dingli Primary, as part of the Young Reporters for the Environment (YRE) Community Action Day. On the day, Yr 6 Jaguars launched an interesting video clip titled ‘Be Responsible, Be Sustainable’, which was also submitted as an entry for the YRE Competition. 

Through this video clip, Ms Michaela’s students spread an important message regarding sustainability, beyond the classroom. They highlighted the importance of informing oneself and of nurturing environmentally conscious minds. They gave concrete examples of how we can be responsible producers and consumers, taking immediate action for a more sustainable future

My Mask – I Care Challenge!

In order to mitigate the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic, we have found ourselves wearing face masks all the time, even if we are, say, alone in the country side. Some people opt to buy disposable face masks, which in turn, can cause problems of their own. On an average day, one may go through 1-3 face masks, thus causing quite a lot of litter! And the worst thing is that some of these masks are ending up improperly discarded and littering our towns and countryside.

To raise awareness about the issue, Dingli Secondary School have issued a Facebook Challenge, in a bid to promote the use of re-usable cloth masks. Just take a picture of yourself wearing a cloth mask, and upload it on Dingli Secondary School’s Facebook Page. (If you’re shy or don’t want to appear on Facebook, just take a pic of your mask). Finally, don’t forget to share the competition post on your Facebook Profile too! (If you’re too young to have a Facebook profile, you can ask your parents or siblings to post the picture and share the post on their own profile).

This competition is open to all College students and staff, Primary, Middle and Secondary Schools.

By participating in this Challenge, you can also win a 10 Euro Voucher from A to Z electronics!
