This Friday, 16th October 2020, we celebrate the World Food Day. Starvation is a massive problem in a number of countries, and we need to do more to raise awareness and combat this problem. It seems crazy that we live in a world whereby a large portion of the population can indulge in any sort of food they wish without a second thought while others struggle to put food on the table.
In this context, the “Mauribio” team, led by Mr Aman Ramchurn was invited by the English teachers of the CM2 to make a presentation about organic farming.
The team explained the dangers of using harmful chemicals in agriculture and how to grow plants using natural compost.
Our students asked relevant questions on how to grow healthy vegetables and they didn’t hesitate to get their hands dirty to sow the seeds, plant and learn transplanting techniques.
Good food basically that we have in our plate is a result of the immense amount of hard work that is put at various stages. Consume it with utmost respect… Best wishes for this World Food Day 2020.
