Participation in the Seeds for Students Initiative – March 2023

On Monday 20th March 2023, our school participated in the Seeds for Students initiative which was organised by Ambjent Malta, within the Ministry for the Environment, Climate Change and Planning. This initiative is aimed at celebrating the beginning of spring and to provide information and education on the importance of sowing trees, which have multiple benefits. The Grade 1 girls sowed seeds which were provided by Ambjent Malta. They sowed Chaste tree seeds in milk cartons. The Chaste Tree is a small tree species native to the Maltese islands. The pots were taken home and the girls were encouraged to take care of them by watering them regularly. This activity complements the work carried out by the EkoSkola and LEAF committee at our school which encourages students to sow plants since they are of great benefit to our surroundings. The activity was coordinated by Ms Charlotte Zammit with the help of Ms Rebecca Cassar.
