Fruit Orchard For All
We are pleased to announce that Victoria School has recently undertaken a fruitful endeavour with the planting of 25 fruit trees on our campus. This initiative serves a dual purpose, aiming to not only provide fresh produce to our culinary arts class but also extend a helping hand to feed students and community members in need.
The decision to plant fruit trees aligns with our school’s commitment to sustainability, community engagement, and fostering a sense of responsibility towards the environment. By incorporating these trees into our campus landscape, we are taking an active step towards promoting ecological awareness and enhancing the availability of nutritious food resources for our school community and beyond.
The primary objective behind this initiative is to supply our culinary arts class with a sustainable source of fresh fruit. These fruits will serve as ingredients for various recipes and practical learning experiences, allowing our students to explore the art of cooking with locally sourced produce. By incorporating these freshly harvested fruits into our culinary curriculum, we aim to foster an appreciation for healthy eating habits and sustainable food practices.
Moreover, we are thrilled to extend the benefits of this initiative to our wider community. Our intention is to contribute to the well-being of those who may not have regular access to fresh, nutritious food, reinforcing our commitment to social responsibility and supporting the communities we are a part of.
A variety of apple, cherry and plum trees were planted by teachers and students. To maintain and support this project groups of classes, teachers and students will be volunteering to water, prune and otherwise maintain the trees throughout the year.
