Back to Earth Initiative

The back to earth project will help us put all our organic green waste to great use and create a stimulating environment for students to learn from. The proposed structure will include a viewing bridge which lays over a river rocked water stream allowing chickens access to water whilst also creating a mini water ecosystem. Sensory plants and landscaping will be selected on the basis they will provide experiences for the senses, beautify the school grounds and provide a safe environment for learning and playing.
