One of the outings organised by our Prep 2 educators involved a visit to the Ta’ Qali Farmers’ Market. The main aim of this outing was to expose our students to Maltese produce.

Some children wondered why none of the farmers were selling apples or banana. It was explained to them that in this market one can only find fruit and vegetables cultivated in Malta. One of the farmers cut a watermelon for the students, and they got to enjoy its refreshing taste. Some vendors enjoyed some time socialising with our students.

During this outing, we bought some fruit to make smoothies and fruit salads. We also bought some tomatoes to make ‘ħobz biż-żejt’ and lettuce in preparation for Lettuce Day at school. Before going to school, we took our students to the picnic area where they enjoyed their lunch and some playtime. This way they also had some time to bond with nature.

LITTERLESS CAMPAIGN

As part of the Litterless campaign, our school organised a LETTUCE DAY. In preparation for this activity, we bought students lettuce from the Farmers’ Market and they ate it during this activity, along with their ‘ħobz biz-żejt’.

During this event we informed our students why we had a lettuce day at school. We explained that rather than throwing the remains away, parts of the lettuce can be used to grow new lettuce using the hydroponics system, which is a system in which produce like lettuce grows without soil but with water and other nutrients.

Thanks to Ms Christine Sciriha for the info!
