On Thursday, 21 December, our MYP students spent the day learning about sustainability, especially connected to the holidays. They first learnt about the Sustainable Development Goals proposed by the United Nations and discussed how they can implement these goals in their own lives. Then they could either join some sports games, the handicrafts workshop, sewing or the baking of vanilla butter cookies. Afterwards, they watched a film and through it learnt an important lesson – holidays are not about gift giving, but spending time with your loved ones.
Let’s all be inspired to be more sustainable during the upcoming holidays!

P.S. If you would like to try baking the wonderful vanilla butter cookies, here is the recipe.
VANILLA BUTTER COOKIES
Flour – 180 g
Sugar – 100 g
Butter – 80 g
Eggs – 1
Vanilla sugar – ½ pack
Baking powder – ½ pack
Pinch of salt
Method: Put all the ingredients into a large mixing bowl and mix until a uniformed dough is formed. Make a ball out of it, which you flatten a little and wrap in a transparent food film.
Place the dough in the refrigerator for approximately 20 minutes.
Prepare the surface by flouring it and rolling it out to a thickness of approximately 3 mm, and grab any cookie cutters you like.
Arrange them on a baking sheet covered with baking paper and bake them for 10 minutes at 180°C.
