Y6 Julliard Music Lesson
Last week, Y6 were very lucky to be able to have Bryan Dryer, our Julliard Music link advisor, join their music lesson. You can watch the lesson here.
STA Farmer’s Market with Happy Grocers
The main project for Ecobeasts this term has been to learn about ‘food miles’ and the sustainability of buying locally grown food rather than items imported from far away. We are pleased to announce what we hope will be a regular farmers’ market with ‘Happy Grocers’ at our Primary Campus.
Here are budding Ecobeast sustainability writers Prasanna and Tan to explain the project in their own words:
HAPPY GROCERS ARE COMING TO SCHOOL!
In our Ecobeast ECA we have been looking into the selling of local produce in an easier, cheaper way. We discussed and planned for an opening of a fruit and veggies shop on the school premises. We wanted to make it available for the whole school community.
On our search we found multiple candidates for this job, and decided on ”Happy Grocers”. This company provides organic fruit and vegetables and delivers them straight from the farm to businesses or private homes.
In this way, fruit and veg travel releases less emissions and cuts costs. It also was important for our ECA to show a way to avoid plastic packaging of typical edible supermarket products.
Happy Grocers will come to our school every Friday (14:00-16:00) to sell some organic, seasonal fruits and vegetables that are common in Thailand. They will be set by the big pool on the Primary campus and they will be available for teachers, parents, staff and children.
