Hey, how are you guys doing? I just wanted to follow up with you to tell you that the deadline for the video and pictures is May 24th. It can be a short video message explaining the ways that you have been staying positive, a positive message for others to hear, what you have been doing to keep busy. If you don't want to send a video message of you speaking it can just be videos or pictures of the activities themselves, exercise, biking, walking, baking, crafts etc. Just remember to include the translation if it's not in English. I don't mean to push, I know this is a difficult time, I just wanted to let you know about the deadline to make sure that you can submit your videos in time if you would like to.
Thank you, Stay safe :)
I hope that you and your surroundings can handle the situation with a clear view.
So we are sending you some materials for your project. We will be happy if you then send us a link to the video so that we can share it and spread the positivity together! It's a really great idea :)
Thank you so much for all those photos, they are going to be unbelievably helpful. We really really appreciate it and will definitely send you the final video when it is done. Thank you again! Have a nice day :)
so how's the video making? We look forward to sharing it with our friends and the general public!
What else do you do? We tried your bee feeders and we have to say that they are really magical. We gave the production process to our younger classmates and they did a great job, see for yourself :)
we would like to renew our communication.
How was your vacation? Have there been any ecoclub events at your place? Despite the difficult situation around coronavirus, we managed to organize several holiday "brigades".
I'd also like to ask about your video that you created. Is it done yet? Can you please send us a link? We would like to share it further!
We look forward to your reply!
Have a nice day!
Lucy and Stephany
Our vacation was good, although our coronavirus cases got a little bit worse so we weren't able to hold any events. That's amazing that you were able to organize some. We are still doing school online so far, so we are hoping to make an online newsletter to send out weekly to keep people informed about the environment.
Unfortunately the video we had planned on making wasn't able to be completed. There were a few obstacles that prevented us from being able to make it, and we also didn't get very many submissions from other people. I'm sorry to disappoint you, and I apologize for losing touch a little bit, but I hope we can continue our communication.
What are you guys planning for this year?
Have a great day!
Hey our Bahamas friends!
It's nice to hear something about you! I am so sorry for your situation. Hopefuly it will get better as soon as possible. We had two months summer holidays but now we are trying to get into the old habits. But we worked during holidays to!
Our first event was mowing the grass, we cooperate with the local ČSOP (Czech Union for Nature Conservation). Then we had a brigade to collect cherry seeds so they could turn them into seedlings. LČR (Forests of Czech Republic) bought them from us. During the holidays there were also several works in our garden and even ecoteam meeting. This year we are defending the title of eco-school (I think you know it?)!
I hope I haven't forgotten anything. Ok, I have. We were actually on an excursion "for aluminum". We collect aluminum every year and the classes compete with each other. We couldn't go last school year, so we replaced it on saturday this year.
We're looking forward some information about your situation and you know (news, how r u, etc.)
Have a nice day
Stephany and Lucy
so how are you doing? We have great news! We defended the title of eco-school. It was hard work, but it was worth it.
What's wrong with you? We haven't heard from you in a long time.
Congratulations! That's amazing news, we were able to renew our Eco School Flag as well. We are really happy about it. Sorry we haven't written in a while, things have been really busy since we are graduating in a few months.
We just had a presentation by ISRAID and they showed us how to recycle plastic bottles. I will attach pictures here, maybe you can use them in your school too! We also started an eco newsletter to inform our school about what we are doing as a club, what they can do to help us, and raise awareness about local environmental issues like the oil drilling we are trying to stop from happening here.
Now we are working on making bird houses and fixing up our bird watching tower.
What have you guys been up to lately?
Happy New Year by the way ;)
graduation will be really difficult this year. We all have mixed feelings about it, but uncertainty probably prevails.
Your products look really great, I really like the "wall garden". We also make similar feeders, but we prefer to use flower pots or coconuts. We try to organize new activities for the public, so now there is a winter call. People send us photos of the winter landscape and also their bird feeders, on which we gave them instructions on how to make them.
Sorry for the late answer, there was a lot before the end of the semester.
I think it's great that you're setting up your newsletter. We have been informing about this for several years on our website and also in the local city magazine.
Do you plan any other activities now? :)
That project where people send you photos and you teach them how to make bird feeders sounds really nice. We celebrated World Wetlands Day recently and took the primary kids for tours of our swamp at school. I think they enjoyed it a lot!
We aren't really planning any more events for this year, just trying to keep up and continue what we are doing currently. We'll continue with our newsletter and our website, and keep recycling and pursuing our themes. We are also working with two other students to train them so that they can take over the eco club when we graduate.
What are you guys planning for the club after you graduate? Will new people take over for you? Soon I'll send you the emails of the new presidents so your club can continue communicating with ours once we graduate.
Nice to hear from you.
I hope everything else is going well.
we talked in the ecoclub about mutual correspondence with you. We have selected two of our members to whom we will pass the baton. Let us know when you select your new representatives and we will forward our email to our new representatives.
we are the new representatives of our Ecoclub in Chotěboř. We are two girls and our names are Barbora (Barbara) and Kateřina (Catherine). We attend our Gymnasium for six years. Our friends are going to graduate shortly so they will be not able to communicate with you any longer.
Both of us really love music, we play guitars together, but we also enjoy learning biology, and thats why we are a part of the Ecoclub and attend activities that the Ecoclub hold.
What are your hobbies and motives to attend your club?
We hope to get to know you more and we look forward to hearing from you.
Hi, it's so nice to talk to you guys. I'm Isabella and I run the club here in the Bahamas with two other girls, but we are graduating now too, so I am going to forward your email to the two new girls that are going to be taking over for us. Their names are Amelia and Eliza and they're excited to get to know you guys and share ideas with you.
I've had a great time communicating with your school this past year and I hope you two enjoy it this year as well.
Nice talking to you! Thank your friends for everything, we really appreciated being able to talk to them, they were amazing :).
Good luck with everything
Thanks for your email. We are very excited to get to know Amelia and Eliza.
Our school holds every year an event thats called Day of the Earth. We have program for kids and contest for young biology students, but we obviously can’t do that this year. Our school is closed for about half a year and the situation is not that great either. Despite the situation we made a challenge for our students that contains going out to the nature and picking up the garbage. This challenge is going to start on the 19.4. and the class that will have the most participants will win fairtrade sweets.
Do you also have any events going on? Or do you have some planned?
