“OrtoRomi per la Scuola”: announced the schools that have been awarded vouchers for the purchase of teaching materials.
465 schools, 1,665 classes and 245 participants in the competition, which awarded 6 very young students vouchers to spend on the purchase of teaching materials: again this year, great enthusiasm for the OrtoRomi school project, already confirmed for 2022/2023.
The “OrtoRomi per la Scuola” project, which the company (based in Bellizzi in the province of Salerno) has been investing in food and environmental education for children and young people since 2019, is very successful.
This year’s edition, which has just ended, has been enriched with a special novelty, a competition in which the very young students have been asked to turn what they have learned into a slogan: an activity with which they can give free rein to their imagination and internalize some important concepts, but also an opportunity to win a voucher to spend on teaching materials.
Among the schools that won the € 500 prize was also an institute from Campania, the Baselice P. Pio School (Benevento) – the others are the Frazione Colognole School (Pisa), the San Giovanni Bosco School (Varese) – extracted among the 216 who uploaded their papers. An additional initiative was also proposed, which made it possible to make a drawing of the topics discussed among the desks.
In this case, it was OrtoRomi himself who selected the 3 winning designs among the 177 presented: still a Campania reality or the school of S. Nicola La Strada (Caserta), which is always flanked by the school of the south. Trepunti (Giarre, in the province of Catania) and finally the Walt Disney School in Piombino Dese (Padua), which received a voucher of € 200.
The interest in the project was confirmed by the registered figures: 338 primary schools and 127 kindergartens were enrolled, a total of 465; in total, the classes involved were 1,665. Children and teenagers participated in various activities for a fun and educational exploration of the food and nature world in the company of two exceptional mascots, Tina and Dino.
Specifically, there were 3 didactic areas: digital laboratories, video pills and visits to the OrtoRomi factories. The digital laboratories and video pills are carried out through an innovative online platform, which can be used in the classroom by the teacher, from which it appears that the most popular educational paths were Garden in the class, Fruit and vegetables in colors and More salad for everyone; do not forget the activities to be done at home with the parents, actively called on the field.
OrtoRomi has confirmed the project for the school year 2022/23, and is working to improve and implement it with new proposals that will take into account the valuable feedback from teachers who have already participated in the initiative with their classes.
