Our vision is to have a creative, welcoming writing lab equipped with alternative seating and lighting that offers a different feel than the traditional classroom. While our ideal circumstance would be to have every classroom equipped with alternative seating, we realize that you have to start somewhere. Since writing is a critical component of every other subject, we thought, "Why not start with our writing lab?" By providing our students with wobble cushions, yoga mats, exercise balls, video game chairs, and dry erase tables, we are hoping to create a fun environment where our kids can get excited about writing. Our plan is to allow allow students to use the writing lab as a place where they can focus solely on the writing process. All of our flexible seating options will help students use up their excess energy instead of having that energy manifest as a distraction in the classroom. This will allow students to focus on producing the best writing possible.

The Nshara Parents School Conservation Club (NPSCC) encompasses a variety of initiatives aimed at instilling a commitment to environmental stewardship in Uganda’s next generation and encouraging more sustainable ways of living. We work with students and teachers within the school to improve knowledge about the environment, increase awareness of conservation issues, and encourage participation in fun, hands-on activities that ‘act locally’ to make a difference. We work with teachers and local experts to ensure our program focus is timely and relevant to current conservation concerns. We also continuously evaluate our efforts to assess their efficacy and inform future directions. Our conservation activities will include included: Field Trips into Lake Mburo National Park Talks and Presentations from Rangers and Local Wildlife Experts Reforestation Projects Health and Sanitation Projects Debates Films Creative Projects

We would like to help remedy poor soil quality by providing nutrients back into the soil through adding worms and compost. Adding Earthworms into our garden soil will help decompose dead organisms and increase the quality of the soil. Composting will also help our school be more sustainable.

Starting with my own clothes, mostly outgrown pants (soft material), my sister and I will turn them into pillows that can be used by cancer treatment centers or even the humane society. Whether people in a cancer treatment chair or an animal in a humane society kennel, they deserve to be comfortable. We are learning how to reuse our old clothes, learning how to sew, and learning how to give and bring smiles to others. We are even attaching a hand written inspirational message to the ones going to the cancer center.

My project will try to make the school more eco-friendly. For example, we will make posters and stickers to advertise turning off the lights when you leave a room. We also have talked to the principals about this stuff, too. We might have fundraisers to raise money to change some other things like maybe adding more efficient sinks and hand dryers.

We will learn how to do vermi-composting as well as traditional composting so that we can use the compost in our outdoor classroom as well as at home. We will learn what is good for composting and what we shouldn't put in it as well as build or purchase a compost bin for our school.
