Our school consists of three levels: gymnasium, high school and Nursing Collegiate School. In high school we have two branches: a theoretical one, specialty – natural science and a vocational one, specialty – environmental protection.

The team of teachers of our school has become aware of the importance and the role of education in promoting active and responsible citizenship to students. Thus, we have successfully developed volunteer activities within the National Strategy of Community Action, as well as environmental protection activities.

A permanent aim of our school is to ensure conditions for establishing a sustainable and secure world based on the analysis of social and economic issues, as well as environmental issues and cultural diversity.

Programmes and projects that our school has been involved in:

  • Starting with the school year 2002-2003, our school has been awarded the title of Eco School, which we are still holding at present, due to the activities that we have carried out in the field of environmental protection.
  • Comenius 1 – School partnerships, „Water: past, present and future”.
  • Comenius Multilateral Partnership “Our future lies in Europe!-Young people meeting European challenges in 21st century”.

Online activity carried on by College of Science “Grigore Antipa”

 

Due to the closure of schools during the pandemic, the teachers held their classes online. As they could not carry out the field activities within the Livingriver project, the teachers dedicated a few hours to the environment, but especially to the waters.

Professor Pavelescu’s students were excited to learn and make presentations on World Environment Day, about the importance of protecting water resources and about the effects of climate change on the Earth’s water resources. At the end, the students checked their knowledge about the impact of pollution on water reserves by answering a questionnaire.

Professor Șerban spoke to the students about the influence of climatic factors and anthropogenic activities on rivers, and the students made presentations about natural hazards, namely floods and damage caused by them, and about the influence of climatic factors on rivers in various regions of the globe: the river Don in the temperate continental area and the river Ebro in the Mediterranean area.

The students also participated in lessons in which they received information about the ESRI system. They took the first steps in creating an interactive map, to visualize and explore data, using ESRI’s dynamic mapping software.
