OIS Celebrated International Earth Day

Omololu International School (OIS) celebrated International Earth Day on Friday, April 22 in a unique and fun way. Taking discarded oil drums from Anglec, students recycled and decorated them as garbage bins, meant to provide more places for residents of Anguilla to discard their trash.
Students were told during Omololu Time (Friday morning assembly) that they would need to design artwork to paint on the barrel. They then returned to their classrooms and worked to create an inspirational, unique, and colorful design with the help of their teachers. They then immediately got to work making their design a reality.
Working throughout the morning, students completed the project by 11:00, creating 6 individual barrels. Working with the Environmental Health Unit, the barrels will be placed at key locations in The Valley – adjacent to the gazebo by the Ruthwill Center, at Valley Primary School, at the People’s Market, and across the street from the Anguilla Tourist Board. The remaining barrels will be placed at Roy’s Bayside Grill in Sandy Ground and one will remain at OIS as a reminder of the project.
Omololu International School plans to make this the start of an annual project, using Earth Day to bring awareness to the environmental issues facing Anguilla.
Omololu International School embraces, holistic, and experiential approaches to learning about our world, equipping students with meaningful understanding and skill sets to lead successful lives and to make a positive contribution to society. Registration for the 2016-17 School Year is now open. For more information kindly see us at www.omololuschool.org, follow us on Facebook, or contact us at 1 (264) 497-5430.
