visited International schoolof Geneva 2 years ago when I was in Switzerland first. It was all by chance and a simple request to hold a workshop but the vice principle Mrs Banks helped to manage 7 workshops and now after 2 years I went back to visit some of the classes.
It was so interesting to visit allthose kids again and surprizingly they remembered most of their questions from last 2 years. the most interesting question was from a 6 years old girl ” what will happen when you grow up and your bicycle becomes small for you?” now she knows that I am not growing anymore.
After workshop we went outside to play with trees and we were trying to drow a shadow for some trees and just making a connection with nature and trees.
here I have a comment from Mrs Marcia Banks about my visit.
Mohammad visited several classes ranging in ages from 5 to 8 year olds, sharing what he does, how he lives, indirectly confronting the young children with the thought that one can live without the material goods we take for granted and still be very happy. The warmth he exuded soon put the young children at ease as he talked of his mission to take care of our planet by caring and respecting what nature offers us, by encouraging us to replace cut down trees by planting new trees, and to add to our planet by making an occasion to plant a tree.
Mohammad exemplified a form of respect and caring, elements we aim to promote at our school.
I showed them the map ofmy journey and introduced many different countries with a little piece of culture or highlights from the country.
We discussed about our personal behaviour and what we indevidually can do to support our planet.
We were playing with trees,hugged them and draw some shadows for some trees which were already cut just to make a kind of physical connection with nature and trees.
