Alqubaiba High Elementary Girls School, an all-girls school in Al-Qubeiba, West Bank, Palestine, was recognised as having the best environmental science club in the state of Palestine.
Situated opposite the famous monastery of Emmaus at a site, which has long seen the peaceful co-existence between Muslim and Christian residents, the school is committed to environmental sustainability.
Its environmental club came into being through a democratic process with students elected to run it and plan its activities. The club has worked on projects to recycle water by irrigating the school garden and it educates students on the need to rationalise water consumption. Another project has seen it create food free from chemicals by recycling garden waste.
Join us for our presentation on teaching students to treasure water.
