In such a world we are living in, we do not find enough time to appreciate the food we are eating and consuming, but we really should care more. Since the students of St. Monica School Gzira, want to raise awareness about this, our Eko-Skola committee decided to build a roof garden at our school. The roof garden will give us the benefit of growing our own organic food, which will be used in the school’s tuck shop and the organic waste left will be reused in the soil. Another benefit is that our biology students will have the opportunity to plant their own crops which they will use for their experiments.

Two students, one of them being myself, paid a visit to the school’s tuck shop to find out what exactly we were eating.

The children of our generation wish for many expensive things, and obviously, families and friends wish for the child to be happy, so toy manufacturers and tech companies work even harder for their products to be sold. But, have we ever wondered what the less-unfortunate want for Christmas?

We should all do our good share to keep the environment clean and help it in every way possible, by picking up litter, by promoting ways not to pollute and much more. We should all do our share without boasting, as Blaise Pascal cleverly quotes: ‘The noble deeds that are concealed are most esteemed’.
