Gardening Project

This year, Mrs Kelliny has started a gardening project with grades 6 and 7, and occasionally grade 3 students. The main ideas behind this project are that there is much to learn outside the classroom and that being in close touch with nature is a great source of mental and physical well-being.

“In addition, we have the privilege of having a unique and wonderful natural environment as part of our campus and we want all our students to learn and benefit from it in many ways, as well as take good care of it “says Mrs Kelliny. 

She hopes there will be no end to the project and that it becomes a continuous process. “It is great for students because there is a direct application of science classes and what students are learning in class (i.e.: observing how the environment is organised and balanced, the food chain, different kinds of soil, how plants grow from seeds bulbs or other ways, how to keep a plant healthy etc.)”  

As a result, the pupils learn to respect, appreciate and protect nature. They also get to learn how to do weeding, therefore, how to use gardening tools efficiently and how to make plants grow. 

Many of the pupils enjoy the activities and come check on their garden often.
