Thousands of third graders from elementary schools in Be'er-Sheva participated (Tuesday, March 6th), in the Be'er-Sheva Miracle March - an activity in which they learned about various sites throughout their community.
As part of the annual tradition, students enjoy experiential study tours around their school. The students learn, about historical and tourist sites, public institutions, and about the sources of the names of the streets that are adjacent to the educational institutions. This year, "Say Yes to Birds" was the conducted activity, in which students were introduced to the birds in our region. This was a record-breaking event, held under the leadership and initiative of the Be'er-Sheva Municipality, and, in cooperation with Kivunim, the Ministry of Education and the Society for the Protection of Nature in Israel.
It should be noted that the march is part of the Pelay (Miracle) Be'er-Sheva program - a unique program that offers guided tours to students from kindergarten to the sixth grade, to the many sites throughout the city, with the main goal is to study, recognize, and cherish the city in which they live.
At the end of the march, each educational cluster convened for a closing ceremony, which was held in the presence of many public figures and educators.
Director of the elementary education department of the Be'er-Sheva municipality, Dina David, noted that this is an activity that invites us to look at, and, to be exposed to the variety of opportunities in heritage, culture, history, and tourism waiting for us near our home.
