Earth Day

Grass planting   Tree planting

Earth, so beautiful and green
Areas full of beautiful trees
Rivers, so nice and blue
Trees giving shade from the sun
Hundreds of beautiful plants and animals
Dams full of water, ready to burst
Another month with more beautiful days
Year after year of everlasting natural beauty
By: Arthur van Campen, Year 8
Wind Spark
I dreamed
I was earth
In space
Rotating and orbiting
By: Aisha Aminu, Year 9


In the garden   In the classroom

The earth is full of wonders of nature
Rustling leaves, howling winds, whistling breezes,
Gurgling streams, tweeting birds, hissing volcanoes,
Splashing waves, cackling trees, plopping rain.
By: Andrea Melissa El Hajj, Year 6
Rhyming Verse
We need to take care of our Earth,
Because it’s where we will give birth
To the new generation,
Who will be in this location.
If we can keep it clean,
Our world will stay green
Our Earth Day is crucial,
We need the removal
Of all our waste,
Let’s make haste!
By: Sille Knudsen, Year 8

Go back


E.I.S. celebrated its array of cultures as students expressed joy in being part of a global community.

Through Origami, Years 6, 7 and 8 students have been developing the following skills and more.

Inspired by their Global Perspectives topic on the importance of Community Service, Year 6 decided to focus on serving their own school community through a cleaning project.

On Saturday, 21st November, several children represented E.I.S. splendidly at the Batizado held at the Capoeira Centre in Haie Vive. Certain children were inspired to write about their experience in the practice of this Afro-Brazilian martial art/dance.

World Food Day was marked in school with good thought, reflection and plans for action.
