EPA trains 64 new teachers in Environmental Education
December 5, 2018 – The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), conducted its 9th annual Environmental Education training workshop during November 28-30, 2018, at Camp Alpha, Soesdyke/Linden Highway. Sixty-four trainee teachers and Lecturers of the Cyril Potter College of Education’s six centers; Anna Regina, Vreed-en-hoop; New Amsterdam; and Linden, Georgetown (In-service) and Turkeyen (pre-service) participated in this stimulating and engaging experience. The workshop also served as a launching pad for teachers to motivate their students to make positive, informed actions for the environment.
The goal of the workshop was to enable participants to utilize a variety of methods to successfully infuse environmental education into the main subject areas of the school’s curricula; Science, Social Studies, Mathematics and English Language. The natural setting of the workshop served as a constant reminder and learning tool for the indispensable benefits our environment provides. It also supported a fun and interactive learning process and equipped teachers to effectively engage in Environmental Education in support of the Green State Development Strategy (GSDS).
The Agency expresses gratitude to the Ministry of Education, Principal of CPCE and all CPCE Centre Heads.
