Aspiring Agronomists [fr]
In May, the pupils of Les Petits Lascars, from Petite Section to CP, went to meet Hong-Kong farmers on an organic farm in the New Territories.
This outing took place within the framework of this year’s educational project "the 4 elements" (water, air, earth and fire).
The children became gardeners for the day and learnt how to sow beans, plant basil and harvest carrots.
They also learnt how to recognise different vegetables and to differentiate between those which grow during the hot and cold seasons.
And insects, harmful or otherwise, are no longer a mystery to them.
All the children appreciated this perfect day full of new lessons and experiences.
