THE INTERNATIONAL School of Paphos (ISP) has been awarded the title ‘Eco-School’ for the academic year 2012 and 2013.
The award ceremony took place at the auditorium of the Hellenic Bank in Paphos.
During the ceremony the school received the green flag given to Eco-School winners.
A school has to follow a seven step change process to be eligible for the title. If the students show improvement in learning, attitude and behaviour towards the environment, the school is awarded the title.
“The school students visited the Kannaviou dam, the water museum in Limassol, Lara beach in Akamas and Paphos harbour. Students had the opportunity to study water and understand the need for environmental protection,” a statement from the school said.
The Eco-Schools programme is an international programme run with the support of the non-governmental organisation Foundation for Environmental Education (FEE).
The programme is aimed at nursery, primary, secondary schools and colleges.
