Green spaces are essential for human health and lengthen life expectancy. Unfortunately, green areas on the Maltese Islands are very limited. Thus, it is imperative to increase awareness about the importance of having parks and green spaces in our environment. In order to contribute towards this goal, the school is planting more trees and flowers. Furthermore, each class has its own green section where herbs, flowers and vegetables are cultivated. One of our missions is to induce love, dedication, and appreciation for growing our own crops. Such an initiative can create a positive mindset towards the production of crops whilst also encouraging self-sufficiency.
