The school’s faculty and students engage in ongoing collaborative activities, jointly working towards the goal of protecting their shared environment.
- Rainwater harvesting systems installed in the schools are utilized as one of the primary tools for educating students on pertinent water-related topics such as weather patterns, rainfall measurements, conservation, interconnectedness of shared resources, and operational needs of the harvesting system.
- Joint field trips to the Farm School provide students with a grounded understanding of agriculture, irrigation, and water reclamation.
- Other off-site activities are utilized as a means for student engagement and learning, from Israeli’s ancient water well and aqueduct system to its innovative desalination and water pumping plants.
- The school’s teachers and principals are trained in a one-day workshop to use educational software, administered by the Youth, Water and Knowledge Program, which they then use to facilitate related lessons throughout the year.
- Sustainability of the effort would be realized by school and community commitment and eventual integration into the national curriculum of Israel’s Ministry of Education.
