Everyone here at Panyaden International School is fully committed to reducing the unnecessary exploitation of our natural resources.
We embrace the recycling of waste materials and the reduction of our carbon footprint.
We encourage all our staff, students, parents and the local community to be mindful of their actions and the impact they can have on the environment.
Here at Panyaden we understand it is not enough to say you care for the environment; it is important that you also act appropriately. This approach was also forefront in our minds when we set out to design and build the beautiful buildings we have today. Our school buildings are constructed from natural, renewable resources and re-used wood and glass. Learn more about our environment visit our school’s Green Architecture page.
What are our environmental projects?
The school divides and processes waste into 3 major types as follows:
- Food scraps are separated from other forms of waste and processed through our on-site food-waste system. This process produces biogas, which is used as cooking fuel for our kitchen and to fertilise the vegetables and plants that we grow at the school.
- Recyclable materials such as plastic, paper, glass and wood scraps are separated and either re-used for classroom activities or sent to recycling plants.
- Non recyclables and hazardous waste used at the school is kept to a minimum and sent for municipal disposal. Waste disposal bins, provided throughout the school, allow for the separation of the different kinds of waste.
Thank you for your interest in our environmental projects. We openly welcome all enquiries from interested families throughout the year, so please feel free to contact us for more information, or to arrange a visit to Panyaden please apply for a school tour.
