Whilst in Bali I also visited the Green School.
This unique school was created through the joint efforts of parents and a very talented designer, and is made completely out of bamboo. The remarkable series of structures house all the schools activities, including a sports area, classrooms, parent meeting rooms, staff rooms, cafe and all the usual school amenities.
Part of school life is “green studies” where the kids learn to plant, weed and harvest all sorts of crops. Classes even have their own rice paddy.
Not surprisingly, kids love going to school. This is a picture of some grade 3′s learning how to harvest beans and capsicums without breaking the plant in the process. Later they would prepare some lunch with the vegetables they harvested. Now, this is my kind of classroom!
