School for environmental awareness Tamra

The school was founded in 1996 by the Israel Ministry of Education and has been growing ever since. The children attend school on a voluntary base - and many children do so. 

There are five teachers and 5 classes. The school has a strong family feeling. Subjects being taught to children are about the environment of Israel, awareness for conservation, recycling, planting of fruits and vegetables, food production and nutrition. There are several greenhouses and outdoor gardens where vegetables and fruits are being grown that the students can take home. Further the school has a small bakery where the students bake bread and Arabic Pizza every day, following traditional recipes.
 
The aim is that the children learn about the importance of environmental conservation, where the food is coming from that they get every day from supermarkets, how it is being produced and processed, and how to have a healthy nutrition.

Even though the school is highly popular and has close ties with the municipal primary schools, it is on a very tight budget, as it is not subsidized, but only financed through the contribution that every student is paying, which is only 40 Shekel (around 8 €/12 USD) per year for 120 hours.

The school also has an art studio where rubbish is recycled into art.

Volunteers can assist the local teachers, but can also suggest their own topics and carry out their own projects with the children.
