md vestnieciba

The new school year is very special and full of challenges, studying in nature, for the four greenest Latvian schools that are honoured with the Mammadaba Embassy name of school year 2019/2010: in Northern Kurzeme region – Lībagi Primary School, in Southern Kurzeme region – Kalnsēta Special Boarding-School, in Northern Latgale region – Vērēmi Elementary School, in Western Vidzeme region – Allaži Elementary School. This is already the tenth year when schools receive the title – Mammadaba Embassy.

In the previous school year schools were actively working by going on nature exploring walks and hikes, participating in clean-ups and in waste paper collecting competition, visited Mammadaba objects and were integrating environmental education comprehensively in everyday work of schools.

In the beginning of the new school year, libraries of schools received educational gifts – books and games about forest, forest values and environmental issues.

The schools that received embassy title will carry it for one school year.

Students and preschool age children of Lībagi Primary School received this honour by actively working in the previous school year: going on nature exploring walks and hikes, cleaning up Dwarf trail and park, setting up birdhouses, collecting 13 tonnes of waste paper, which gave them the first place in the waste paper collecting contest, visiting Mammadaba objects and integrating environmental education comprehensively in everyday work of school.

On the first day of school, September 2, the Mammadaba flag was raised next to Lībagi Primary School. Arvis Heniņš, director of forest management planning of LVM Northern Kurzeme region, presented school with an accreditation article about receiving a title of Mammadaba Embassy. Arvis Heniņš encouraged all students to give the Green oath and continue to be active also in the new school year.

In September five teachers from Lībagi Primary School will participate in the further education courses with a theme “Research in Forest”. In spring children already have bird watching excursion planned in collaboration with ornithologists, but in May all students will go to the impressive Forest Days of Latvia in Tērvete.
