Greetings from Rapla Vesiroosi Kool (Rapla Waterlily School)!
Our small hometown Rapla is located in Central Estonia, not far (56 km) from Tallinn and it is green and cosy.
At our school there are students 7-16 years old and altogether more than 500 hundred students and about 60 teachers.
Our school is well-known in many movements in Estonia: Nature and environment, Health, Career, Sporty movement for students, Global education, Drama studies, music groups(singers and musicians), the partnership with Soldino school from Narva is definitely one of our favourite projects. We are eager to communicate with new partners worldwide as well. We are proud of our Students` Council and its activities for the whole school (quizizz, newspaper and thematic days).
Sustainable projects are dedicated to nature and environment. Not only outdoor activities, but also the topics are integrated into the lessons in the timetable. The group of students who participate in the project are mostly from Form9, but there are younger students as well.
The project is important because we have nature and environment themes in the lessons. Our school works together with the Environmental centre and students in classes have nature trips. The World Cleanup Day has always been important and popular in our school. We have already noticed some climate changes. It would be interesting to share the stories with other participants.
Here are some photos of our World Cleanup activities:
And this is how our school looks like: Some pictures are of the nature around our school and some from inside the school)
