The students from BIS HCMC have welcomed eight children to the Eco Club from Binh Tho School. We have been working together on a couple of projects, both of which have involved getting our hands rather dirty!
We started by decorating miniature clay flower pots. The children all really enjoyed making their pot their own and it was wonderful to see the variety. We then did some research on how to grow cress and followed the steps using their beautiful pots.
The BIS HCMC children were given the responsibility of looking after their own pot and a pot belonging to one of their friends from Binh Tho School. Sadly, the cress did not grow. The children were disappointed but keen to reflect and try again. Gardening is all about trial and error and it is fantastic that the children are getting first-hand experience of this. Hopefully we will have some cress to try next club!
