ANTHONY Abell College (AAC) of Seria held the Go Green Project yesterday which saw the launching of its new Green Planting House.
This was a follow-up project from the AAC Green Day Celebration on June 10 and pre-vocational students’ visit to the Mushroom House in Kuala Belait on June 24.
The guest of honour was Pengiran Sarimah binti Pengiran Hj Ahmad, Acting Head of Special Education Unit of the Ministry of Education (MoE).
Pg Sarimah, in her opening speech, said, “I was informed that the Green Planting House – Mushroom House and Herbal Garden – is to boost students’ proficiency in cultivating different types of herbs and the nursery of fungal vegetables.”
“Pre-vocational students need to be committed to the preservation of the plants, and this would see them enjoy the fruit of their efforts.”
“The Green Planting House can be used together by teachers and students to enhance the teaching and learning of subjects such as Science, Geography and Biology.
“It can also be used by the teachers to have a hands-on teaching experience with the students.
“This is geared towards the Learning and Teaching of the 21st Century that coincide with realisation of the vision and mission of the MoE to provide a holistic form of education to achieve the maximum potential of the students.”
The event also saw the cutting of a ribbon to officiate the opening of the Green Planting House.
Accompanied by Halizawati binti Hj Kepli, Pengiran Sarimah made a tour around the school to observe activities relating to the Go Green Project.
Some of the activities held were landscaping, planting and making handicraft out of recycled materials.
With the involvement of all 610 students and 76 teachers, the programme is aimed to promote awareness on the importance of a greener and healthier environment and a conducive learning atmosphere.
