Starting Off the Year with a Big "Green" Bang!

Hello to one and all!  It's been a long, silent summer from the Sustainability and Service Learning office and it's time to get that rust off our keyboards and jump on that ever-fast-paced treadmill called working at ISKL and get the year off to a great start! 

And a great start it is!  As many of you know, ISKL was informed last May that it will become the very first Eco-Schools Green Flag recipient in Malaysia!  Now the stage is all set for that very recognition. The Eco-Schools Green Flag award ceremony will take place during a special HS Assembly on August 21st at 11:40 am. It will be awarded by the CEO of the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) in Malaysia and we expect to have a representative of the Malaysian Ministry of Education present as well as our administration headed by our new - and very supportive - director Dr. Norma Hudson and our Green Council members. What a better way to start the year with a bang, and what better a recognition for the efforts of our Green Council and, more generally, the entire community!  

As a short but ongoing aside, and particularly for those who are new to ISKL, I'd like to share the online sources of information that you can use for updates on our sustainability and service learning programming:
On a related, but perhaps less historically important note, Community Recycling and our composting-from-home program are starting up this weekend as well. I invite each and every family to consider participating. Just let me know if you're interested!
