On a Spring day, students of Parada de Gonta Elementary School decided to go for a walk in the village, watching Nature.
During their journey, they saw some soil water pollution! They kept going and they observed that the river Pavia was also polluted.
They returned to school troubled by what they saw during their trip. They had a reunion and decided to take some actions in order to alert the population and finding a solution to fix that problem.
Teachers decided to invite a company that works with environment related questions to carry out an alert action in school. In this action, students were warned of the consequences of Nature pollution. It was a valid lesson, all the information was transmitted to relatives and friends in the school blog.
From that day, some changes were seen in people’s behaviour regarding environment protection.
The Local Council decided, alongside Local Firemen, to clean all the surrounding woods. They invited the population to take part in this cleaning campaign.
On World Environment Day, 5th of June, the students made the same walk that they did before, in order to see if there were changes in people’s behaviour regarding Nature, to see if Mother Nature was now “happy” and clean.
Students returned to school very happy, their work was not in vain, it was very useful for the Planet Earth.
