Tree Planting at The Awty International School Supports Sustainability Projects

Our school planted a native Texas oak tree on school campus on October 4th 2013 and registered it on ForestNation website. The tree was dedicated to Ms Kristi Winegarden, a science teacher who, a couple of years ago, started our sustainability committee’s work and long-term objectives toward recycling, reusing and reducing. She is now teaching in another international school overseas and has left us with a very fond memory of her passion for sustainable projects involving students, parents and support staff. The tree was her students’ idea of saying thank you to their teacher in a sustainable way. It is now planted near our campus entrance, as a wonderful reminder of her engagement toward preserving our environment and the friendships that have taken root from sharing her projects enhancing our campus life, just like this tree.

Does your school do something similar?
