Tarxien Middle School recently took part in the Young Reporters for the Environment (YRE 2019) competition.
YRE gives young people aged 11-25 a platform to research environmental issues and promote solutions through investigative reporting, photography, and video journalism. Their projects engage young people to tell stories about the world and environment.
Student Nicole Zammit submitted two photographs, together with the corresponding text.
Minions Go Green (pictured above): At Tarxien Middle School the Minions went green thanks to Ms Carmen Bonnici LSE supported by students. Old car tyres were reused as a decorative planter in our school and this embellished greatly our school environment. I suggest that other schools or other organisations follow suit even by using other recyclable materials.
A Tempest in a Teapot: Sometimes we over worry over small matters but our concerns re-the environment should never be underestimated. Considering the increasing number of motor vehicles in Malta, reusing old tyres as decorative planters is certainly an excellent idea which can be easily used in public playgrounds or as innovative street furniture
