Real Food Garden
It all started back in June 2019 with the Planet Aid event. This initiative, organised by the Parent-Teacher-Association (PTA), supported CLIP’s aim to develop a more comprehensive and hands-on relationship with Nature. Throughout the past two years, students, teachers, and parents – led by the Eco-Committee – have engaged in meaningful activities building and nurturing a deep and close connection with the environment. Today, we are proud to unveil the Real Food Garden project. By developing a vegetable garden, the CLIP Community can proactively take part in the promotion of a circular economy whilst enjoying contact with Nature and helping their own food to grow. Nine grow beds were installed by Noocity, by the Football Pitch, as an “entrance hall” to what will be our “Shire”, allowing for a perfect combination between leisure and learning. The Real Food Garden - for which all the proceedings of the Planet Aid event were used - is one visible outcome of the continued partnership, resilience and mutual support of the PTA and the School, who continued to believe in the Planet Aid’s vision.

Blue School Day
Next Thursday, the 19th of May, we are celebrating Blue School day. CLIP is now a Blue School for 5 years, meaning that, for five years, we fostered through innovation and creativity the learning of Ocean Literacy. As a Blue School, we promoted the development of critical thinking and cross-curriculum initiatives in students, encouraging them to transform their knowledge into effective attitude changes in their relationship with the Ocean. To celebrate this, we're delighted to invite students to bring their blue uniform polo, with staff joining in too with a blue item of clothing. In this way, we can celebrate this special date and also raise awareness for Ocean sustainability and the importance of Ocean stewardship.
