We save water at Sunland!

At Novaschool Sunland we are very involved with environmental awareness and responsible use of natural resources, proof of this has been the recent obtaining of ISO certificates (both quality and environmental). After a year of evaluating and tracking the consumption, we can see the results of this minimization, these being the actions taken:

  • Placement of pearlizers in the taps
  • Change of tanks with double load
  • Talks of internal awareness to both teachers and students
  • Placement of posters for awareness and minimization in rooms and bathrooms
  • Realization of plans and technical instructions for the proper use of resources
  • In addition to carrying out improvements in the facilities of the center during the new works carried out that help responsible consumption.

Today we want to highlight that we have exceeded our proposed goal of reducing water consumption (m3 consumed per person) by 5% compared to the previous year, result that we envisioned by the involvement of all staff and students who do the day to day in Novaschool Sunland.

Ali Bagherian, in the Top 10

Last September was announced the list of nominees for the best teacher in Spain of the second edition of the Educa Awards and two teachers from Malaga go to the final, being one of them Ali Bagherian, Secondary and Baccalaureate teacher at Novaschool Añoreta school (located in Rincon de la Victoria) from the 2002-2003 academic year, which also teaches the subject of Business Economics at Novaschool Sunland (Cártama) from the 2017-2018 academic year, as part of the specific phase to which you want to present the students to upload a note for access to the University.

For 15 years, Bagherian has coincided with a multitude of students with whom he has shared experiences, and in which undoubtedly this professor of Philosophy, History and Entrepreneurial Culture has left an indelible mark. These same students have been the ones who have taken their teacher to this nomination since for these awards the teachers can not present their candidacy, they must be proposed by their students and / or former students, and / or by their families.

Among the reasons that have encouraged students and families to propose their teacher Ali Bagherian as Best Teacher in Spain is undoubtedly his involvement both professionally and personally: “I put a lot of passion in each class, I think that for my students it is clear that I am where I want to be and what I believe in what I do. I love my work, that’s why I prepare and feel each class as if it were the most important. ”
Ali Bagherian is one of those teachers who make their students think and reflect, and as Bagherian himself states, “in a world where information abounds and also does so fleetingly, promoting critical thinking in the classroom becomes in one of the most important competitions ”.

For Ali Bagherian this nomination is “an injection of courage that confirms me and lets me know that I am on the right track; it clears those doubts that sometimes arise in the exercise of self-criticism and at the same time poses the challenge of maintaining my convictions and of reinventing myself on a daily basis. ”

Last April, Bagherian presented with Francisco Barrionuevo, CEO and Novaschool economics professor, the book ” Entrepreneurial and entrepreneurial culture ” drawn up jointly by the two professors and which has been used in the past the classrooms of 1st of Bachillerato. In addition, in recent years Ali Bagherian has published more than 40 educational videos of great use for high school students and has a multitude of visualizations.

The date on which we will meet the winners will be on January 10th, 2019. The awards ceremony for the Best Teachers will be held at the 2nd World Education Congress, EDUCA 2019, during the days 21st, 22nd and 23rd of February in Santiago de Compostela.
