As responsible students, to show that we care about ‘Deforestation’ which is the removal of a forest or of various trees, we needed to implement actions regarding ‘Deforestaction’. Thus, our school took the opportunity to be involved in the ‘Plant a Tree for Peace’ activity. Being aware of this global problem, students collected money for eight trees to be planted during this event. Besides this, we joined in some workshops were we had the opportunity to learn and enhance our knowledge about different topics such as: the problems pests like the red palm weevil cause to the environment, how our forefathers used the palm leaves to earn a living, various tips on how it is best to grow oak trees and dwarf fan palms from seeds. All these were followed by an explanation about the type of plants that one can find in the community at the nature park.

Fl-iskola tagħna aħna ppreparajna għal din l-attivita’ billi ġbarna xi flus biex inkunu nistgħu nixtru tmien siġriet biex niżirgħuhom dakinhar waqt din l-attivita’.
