SCHOOL GOES GREEN

Go! & Express - - FRONT PAGE -

Pupils and staff from St Thomas Pre-School in King Wil­liam’s Town have started their own veg­etable gar­den where they grow a va­ri­ety of pro­duce such as tomatoes, cab­bage, and onions. The idea for the gar­den came ear­lier this year dur­ing the school’s Health Week when pupils were asked where food came from and an­swered: ‘From the shops!’ Teach­ers now use the gar­den to teach pupils where the food on their plates comes from and how to eat healthily. The veg­eta­bles are wa­tered with har­vested rain wa­ter and are then used to pro­vide meals to the pupils
