From the school year 2019 – 2020, WASS started to launch vegetable gardens with the purpose of creating more green spaces for the school and a practice area for biology classes. The gardens are also the source of fresh, healthy meals for WASSers. In response to World Environment Day held in June, WASS would like to convey key messages about the environment as well as the importance of green trees to students. Join us for a fun hands-on lesson of WASSers.
Through practice lessons, the green vegetable garden helps enhance interactions between students and their surroundings, students’ awareness of the importance of plants to the environment as well as nature. Additionally, WASSers will gain exciting lessons and concepts by hands-on experience with vegetable harvests:
- Responsibilities: Students understand their responsibilities as well as necessary actions to protect trees and the environment.
- Understanding: Students learn about tree development, seed germination as well as factors affecting plants such as soil, water, light and temperature.
- Love for nature: The opportunity to study outdoors in a dynamic and safe environment.
- Exploring: Students have the opportunity to learn about biology, the world around them, the environment, weather, sustainability and nutrition.
- Creativity and teamwork: Students are encouraged to learn about new concepts, share their knowledge with their classmates and conduct a group project together.
- Nutrition: Students know how fresh food is grown and the nutritional value of organic produce.
At WASS, students have opportunities to develop themselves through outdoor practice classes. These classes help them to develop relevant awareness on environmental issues and the big world around them, as well as nurture them to become well rounded global citizens.
