As in previous years, our school’s Green Club members are involved in many mid-day break activities related to the upkeep of its West End Wildlife Garden, a green oasis that hosts numerous indigenous species of flora and fauna.
This work includes weeding, pruning, planting, maintenance and other general upkeep tasks. This garden provides students and teachers with a quiet, natural environment where to relax or carry out tasks related to the curriculum.
This year, the club is working on extending the garden to the other side of the main path leading from the gate, allowing for more space where students can interact closely with nature. The main part of this work consists of putting up the windbreaker, creating a winding footpath, installing a bench and planting bushes and should be complete by the end of this scholastic year (2018-19).
