As part of the Marine Educational Area Label (AME), Papetoai school organized its Sea Council on Monday June, 8th to finalize its request for the AME label.
This Council, which took place on World Oceans Day, saw the participation of Mr. Roland Sanquer, representative for the DGEE (Directorate General for Education and Teaching), Papetoai school director, Municipality of Moorea representatives and finally cultural and environmental referents, including Te mana o te moana.
After a general presentation in the 3 classes of CM1 and CM2, the two delegates appointed by each class led the Sea Council during which they presented their AME zone located in front of the Papeotai quay and explained the actions they wish to set up during next school year.
Indeed, once the label has been granted, the school must carry out actions throughout the year to enhance the label.
Many ideas were proposed by the students: garbage collection, river cleaning, information via the creation of information panels in 3 languages, education of the population and school students, creation of a newspaper, preparation of TV reports, development of fact sheets for flora and fauna and much more…
Congratulations to the students as well as to the teachers and the various guests for their commitment to act for the environment!
