Sponsorship by Mountain Top
Mountain Top sponsored the activities of The Climate Compliance Conference in North Leeward.
The students of Richmond Vale Academy (RVA) were taught about the environment, with a focus on recycling and reducing pollution from trash in six North Leeward Village Primary and Secondary Schools in the period from 1st of November 2012 till 1st of March 2013.
The Climate Conference arranged 5 lessons in every village. Young and old received lessons about how to protect the environment, how to recycle and learned how we can adapt to the challenges of Global Warming and Climate Change.
The teaching lead to a ‘Trash March’, with one hundred people marching from Petit Bordel to Fitz Hughes, picking up trash, with a ‘Trash Pick-Up Competition’ between six schools called “The World’s Cleanest Country Competition”. Troumaka Primary school won, followed by Fitz Hughes Primary School and Westwood Methodist School. The winners receive musical or sport equipments for their school.
