At OurPlanet, sustainability is not only something that is taught. Sustainable and environmentally friendly habits and actions are embedded in the curriculum and are part of the school’s life. This creates the perfect environment for students to grow with the knowledge and awareness of the ecological challenges and that tomorrow they will be the adults that will make the best decisions for the future of the planet. Every year, OurPlanet celebrates Earth Day with a day-long event, marked by visiting a series of interactive learning stations including planting, scavenger hunt, puzzles, a nature film and more to explore sustainability.

Students “get their hands dirty” to learn the fascinating process of decomposition by testing different methods to turn organic material into rich, loamy soil for school gardens to produce tomatoes, chickpeas and sunflowers.

We host Oman’s first recycling centre where several families bring plastic, paper and cardboard that is sold to local companies for processing.

We organise conservation projects such as cleaning up local mangrove reserves and encourage community involvement.

The annual day-long event is marked by visiting a series of interactive learning stations including planting, scavenger hunt, puzzles, a nature film and more to explore sustainability.

The diversity of oceans is celebrated with paintings, drawings, photographs and models of creatures found off the Omani coast, like frilled sharks, leatherback turtles, cuttlefish and the great whites.

OurPlanet brings together students from different local primary schools and spreads awareness on sustainability through hands-on activities. ‘Creepy crawlies’ is a renowned one that helps understand the composting process.

 

To supplement the curriculum, our Sustainability Coordinator leads age-appropriate discussions and activities on various environmental topics.

OurPlanet connects with like-minded teachers and students across the globe to compete for eco awards while learning new avenues of sustainability together.
