Garden International School (GIS) held a whole school assembly to mark Earth Day.

Led by Head of Humanities Mr Elderkamp, students explained the work that was taking place in school to help the environment.

Among the excellent work taking place is a recycling scheme, which is organised by IB students, which allows recycled plastic bottles to be sold for money. This in turn helps pay for new plants around the school. Students were also encouraged to create their own poster to help raise awareness about the importance of the environment.

IB1 student Paul also explained how, by switching off air-conditioning units and lights when they are not in use, could result in huge energy savings.

The assembly ended with an electricity-free, acoustic performance by GeeGee and Seren of Joni Mitchell’s ‘Big Yellow Taxi’. GIS is based in Ban Chang, near Pattaya. For more on the school, visit www.gardenrayong.com.
