TIS Students Win Top 3 Awards at 'Sea of Plastic' Recycled Art Exhibition

Jun 06, 2023

Our Grade 4 students have swept the competition at the “Sea of Plastic: A Recycled Art Exhibition” organized by the Institute of Science and Environment at the University of Saint Joseph (ISE/USJ), by winning ALL THREE first places!

The exhibition aimed to raise awareness about the need to protect our oceans from plastic pollution, and by creating art using trash found on Hac Sa Beach, the students conveyed this powerful message perfectly.

At TIS, our students are no strangers to using art as a means to showcase their creativity and activism. Through our Activist in Residence program, we work with specialists to promote sustainability and encourage our students to take an active role in protecting the environment. This exhibition is a culmination of ongoing projects, such as the “Waste in Our World” at the beginning of the year, where students turn beach clean-up materials into mindful art.
