We are TR02 Hilal Necmiye Primary School from İzmir, Turkey. We celebrated the event with a little delay this year because of our holiday season for the Ramadan Festival. We celebrated the day on October 9th with a great participation of local authorities, TV stations and reporters, our new children and babies, our teachers, environment foundations. We were about 50 people on a erosion field near Bornova, the place we lived, in İzmir. It was really great. The same night we had our place in a TV program and the other day lots of newspapers again. We planted over 300 trees this year and total amount of the trees we planted recently in 5 years to the number of 13.000. We are very happy. And we also very happy to be a part of ENO family.

All the nursery's in Alaska told me that where we live, the best time to plant trees is in the spring. Most dealers stop selling trees in late July!

Some Background of Capricorn Primary:
In early 2005 however, prompted by difficulties in placing the children from our Creche in Primary schools, and encouraged by discussions with friends and supporters, a decision was made to try and raise enough money to build a school. The concept started modestly, even thinking of using modified shipping containers as the basic units.
Dennis Fabian an architect and supporter for the project designed a proper school with 12 classrooms which would cater for over 400 children. Using his contacts, Dennis put together a team of professional and building firms, many of whom worked either for free or at a discount.
By early 2007 the project was triggered Work started on site in June 2007 and within six months the school was finished. On the first day of the school term 16th January 2008, Capricorn Primary School opened.
The school is what is called a Foundation Phase Primary School which caters for 4 grades, - Grades R through 3, - it has 12 classrooms and approx 400 children between 6 and 10 years old (35 per class). It is designed in such a way that it can be extended by building on another 12 classrooms for the other 4 grades of primary school.

Free primary school Meulebeke (Belgium) have just registered to ENO Tree Planting Day. On the webpage of their nature reserve they had an important activity a few weeks ago. They sew seeds of new wild local weeds and wild local flowers so they can improve the diversity in our nature reserve. Pupils can study in a better way the beauty of nature!

We, in India celebrated the World Forest Day with our students getting them to spend the whole day in the forest, making their own huts with their bed sheets and bamboos. In this way we wanted that they may come in direct contact of mother nature, and while spending the whole day away from cell phones, TV and other household comforts of material life. They could listen the music of the birds and trees. They arranged for their meals themselves under the supervision of teachers. They also started the process of planting trees. Though the rainy season has not set in, in India so the plantation would go up to August, 2009. We shall plant two hundred fifty hard wood trees on Government barren lands near to our institution. The Distt. Forest Deptt. Roopnagar would help us providing the plants. We hereby attached the photographs. The students belonging to snap no. 7192 – Amazon Group stood first for all forest activities such as searching for different kind of plants, species, woods, stones and making huts with minimum help from the forest. Group Nile , snap no. 7193 stood second & group Yangtze snap no. 7190 stood third.
I hope you will find the activities very interesting. Your valuable advise is required.
