wellington-tj-green-marketIn support of one of the world’s largest and most significant environmental movements, pupils, parents and staff at Wellington College International Tianjin took part in a series of academic initiatives and community events to further develop their environmental awareness of our planet.

Pupils and staff swapped shirts and ties for anything green, with special assemblies being held for both Junior and Senior Schools. Pupils in “the Nest” worked on innovative projects that used recycled and environmentally friendly materials to create fun products, such as water shakers, in addition to using organic materials to produce various artworks. Led by the geography department, Senior School pupils took part in a range of projects in the field of expressive arts, producing artworks with an environmental focus and creating fashionable items from recycled products.

During the afternoon, Wellington’s Fourth Green Market hosted some of North-eastern China’s most reputable producers of organic food products, alongside a range of other socially responsible local and international institutions. Blessed with beautiful sunshine, the community event allowed pupils and parents to share their wishes for a better environment with others, whilst actively learning from groups that operate sustainably in the local economy.
