Schools for Strategic Partnership

Together we build a greener and healthier planet and put food on people´s plates!

Students in the enrichment group Reduce, reuse recycle created a project to raise awareness of how much food we throw away unnecessarily when we eat school lunch. Not that the food is not good, but because we take too much on the plate.

Over four days, students were asked to weigh their leftovers. These were compiled by the enrichment group.

Miss. S. Celino's math class grade 7 worked with the figures and presented them in the form of descriptive statistics.

Winning  class was 8 V, not surprising given that two of the students are in enrichment group and probably contributed with their commitment to their classmates.

The class that won, each student received a cinema ticket (19 in this case). Other 5 classes that conducted the experiment all four days gets two tickets per class for those responsible for the measurements.

Now we hope that the new attitude towards food which is not prepared  and cooked only to be thrown away holds.

Thanks to the lunch ladies Karin Elias, Monica Hermansson and Wendy Sanjairag who always are positive to events in the school.
