WELL-BEING

WELL-BEING petrol. This is very harmful to the birds’ existence. In conclusion, nature is too beautiful and precious to be carelessly destroyed. Plastics are a major problem for marine life and our beloved bird life and…… US! Please join us and help save our world by thinking, “Is this really necessary?” before using anything made out of plastic. To finish off, we’d like to share some of the responses we recently received from Tesco Lotus and Villa market. Khun Patikorn, from Tesco Lotus, said that they have rewarded their customers with more than 3 billion green points and they have two plastic bag free stores in Thailand. They said, “Let’s do this together.” We are very excited about this. Khun Ploy from Villa Supermarket

also sent us a reply saying they have plastic free campaigns on the fourth and 14th of every month, they said they want to eventually have plasticfree campaigns every day AND they are introducing tote bags and paper bags to every customer. We are pleased to read about these developments and look forward to working on this with them in the future. We are extremely passionate and incredibly inspired to improve global sustainability. We wonder if you are now reflecting on your own behaviour, if you are passionate about making changes and approach this devastating problem with rigour. We have absolutely no doubt you are!

e would like to share our Project-Based Learning with you and show you how we are collaborative, confident communicators, passionate, resourceful as well as ethical and informed. First of all, we created a mind map of our interests and discovered that we are both interested in cooking. We then came up with a driving question which couldn’t be answered in just one step. It was, ‘How can we create a wider variety of healthy snacks for the snack bar at school? We researched healthy foods with Khun Waree in the Library. We also

wrote to Jamie Oliver and his team gave us some good tips. We made a non-chronological report about protein, vitamins, vegetables/fruits and carbohydrates. We decided to make a snack that has lots of carbohydrates in it because carbohydrate give you energy and children and teachers need lots of energy at school. We emailed Chef Autumn, asking if she could show us how to cook healthy snacks. She replied, ‘Yes.’ We went with Ms Keri and our mums to the Commons in Thonglor to cook with her. We made pita chips, hummus and quinoa energy balls.

On Saturday 8th December 2018, we visited the The Marriott Hotel Bangkok to meet with the Food and Beverage Manager. We made healthy cookies with Chef Dang and salad with Chef Toto. Then we looked at the ingredients we had used in these recipes and put together a survey. We asked Year 3 students which ingredients they liked. We put the most popular ingredients together to make a healthy snack. We made a chocolatey granola bar but it turned out very crumbly! We shared it with our class and someone said it was crumbly but good and someone complained it was too bitter. After receiving the feedback, we changed the recipe slightly and created another cookie using mashed banana, dark chocolate chips, rolled oats and vanilla extract. It was just right! We shared it with our class and they loved it. We gave it to Miss Lorraine, and she really liked it! We then researched packaging and pricing. We thought that the packaging should be the same as the cookies that are currently sold in the snack bar – the packaging is paper. For the pricing, we thought it should also be the same, which is 20 baht. If it was more expensive then students might buy the other cookies and not ours. Then we visited Khun Prim, the school nutritionist, and presented our proposal to her. She was very positive and her boss said ‘yes’ to selling our cookies. We were so happy to hear this. We then went to the Canteen in Secondary School to show our amazing chefs how to cook the snack. They are experts at this now. Very soon, we will launch the snack in the snack bars. We will put up advertisements around the school and have a free tasting day for students. We hope students like our delicious Choco-Nana snack. We hope you have an opportunity to try our Choco-Nana snack too.
