Climate Strike at NIS

Today, NIS joined forces with hundreds of thousands students from more than 1,200 cities around the world for a Climate Strike. Gr. 2 students, who recently learned about the human impact on the environment in their Sharing the Planet Unit of Inquiry, organized a “Ban Single Use Plastic Day” and “NIS Clean-Up Day”. The main event took place in the gym where students across all grades participated in various performances, from choir to skits and drama, and culminated in a formal request to the school asking for action to be taken to make a positive impact on the world from an environmental perspective.
