After teachers finish delivering our eight-lesson Environmental Education Program, we visit the school for a short interview with the teacher, so that we can evaluate the program and learn how to improve it in the future.
Below is an interview by Saras, our Research Officer, with Pak Hindu Komang, the Year 6 teacher at SDN 15 Dangin Puri who has taught three classes from the BfB Education Program to date, and is currently teaching the fourth!

On Saturday October 22nd I joined the second lesson of Bottle for Botol’s Environmental Education Program at SDN 2 Canggu. Most schools in Bali run their extracurricular activities on Saturdays. One of the extracurricular at SDN 2 Canggu is about the environment. The lesson started at 08.30 am and was taught by Pak Made Dasna and Ibu Yeti, the year 5 and 6 teachers. All of the students began the lesson by singing a happy song called “Di Sini Senang, di Sana Senang” together. “Di Sini Senang, di Sana Senang” means “We are happy everywhere”. The teachers explained they chose the song to start the Bottle for Botol lesson with good spirits. The teacher asked the students to explain the last BfB lesson that had been given. The students were very enthusiastic and almost all of them raised their hand to get a chance to explain the lesson.

Congratulations to the new year 6 class at SDN 15 Dangin Puri and their teacher Pak Komang Hindu! On Saturday, the 27th of August, 34 students received their Bottle for Botol bottles. By bringing their bottle to school each day these students will prevent more than 180 plastic cups or bottles from entering the waste stream every week!
