Julia visited our school on 15th May. It had been a whilst since her last visit, so we really anticipated her visit. She taught the learners about the importance of keeping the environment clean through recycling, reducing and reusing our waste. We call this integrated waste management. We learned about how to make compost for grass cutting and vegetable cuttings. This will help us improve our soils to grow healthy plants. We also talked about how paper is made using a human-chain and card building activity. We then demonstrated this paper-making process by making our own home-made paper. Recycling our old paper, we made intricate newspaper baskets after watching a short video. The lesson was meaningful and interesting as we do experience a problem as to what to do with the collected paper.
