Our team had a great time with 170 primary three students at Yuhua Primary School!
Our interactive and fun-filled workshop taught the following:
- The benefits of compost
- How to make compost using simple, everyday materials
- How to prevent smells and flies
- Where to place your compost bin
- How a compost pile looks and smells like – before and after
- How to use compost
The children won prizes while participating in composting activities and quizzes. The session ended on a high note with a ball game, a short cartoon about composting, and a cheerful wefie!
Everyone had a memorable and lively time!
