200 students of Regent International School collected 1.5 tonnes of waste in a Clean-Up campaign

The staff and students of Regent International School today collaborated with the Emirates Environmental Group for a Clean-Up Campaign specially organised for RIS students. The Clean-up campaign began at 8:30 am at the Nad Al Sheba area and concluded at 10.30 am.


Around 200 students from grade 7 to grade 9 collected around 1.5 tonnes (weight) of waste. The collected waste mostly consisted of tyres, old and used carpets, general waste, sweet wrappings, plastic bottles, paper, tin foil etc. Volunteers of the Clean Up campaign were equipped with bio-degradable trash bags, gloves, caps and t-shirts as they set out for making Dubai a cleaner city.


Campaigns such as these play an important role in creating awareness about littering and protecting the environment at large and the immediate the ecosystem around us.


“In Regent International School we believe that the end of education is character.  Through Education in Human Values programme we aim to inculcate strong values and service mindset in our students. Simple act of cleaning the desert of man-made rubbish brings students to realization of the extent to which people influence the nature with its day to day to day activity. Throw a plastic bag today and you may find it in the desert 10 years later.” said Ms. Katrina Mankani, Head of Education in Human Values Department, Regent International School.


 “I am extremely pleased that our school and students participated and contributed successfully in this campaign. At RIS, we regularly partner with NGOs and other charitable organisations in doing our bit to give back to the community that we are a part of.  I am confident that today\'s event will help raise awareness among the young generation to contribute proactively towards a cleaner and sustainable environment,” said Janet O’Keefe, Director of Operations, Fortes Education.


“The continuity of the Clean Up UAE campaign for the last 13 years is solely due to the diligence and whole-hearted participation of every individual. While the core message behind the event has not changed over the years it is essential to reiterate the necessity of preserving the environment by maintaining cleanliness, recycling and making this an integral part of the activities one carries out on a daily basis. It is through such simple operations that one can draw raw materials and other such environmentally valuable material away from landfills, in addition to conserving natural resources from the risk of exhaustion. It is worth mentioning that the first flight of the Clean Up UAE campaign took off on the 12th of December 2002” said Habiba Al Marashi, Chairperson of EEG.
