Gardening Club

 

Park View Primary School Gardening Club is a new CCA that has been established since 2013. It is currently run by Ms June Quek and Mdm Syedama. Our pupils are given the opportunity to tend to the plants in the different gardening plots around the school like the spice garden, cactus garden, flowering garden and ferm garden and learn about their adaption. They are involved in basic gardening activities like weeding, watering, pruning to ensure that the plants grow healthily. Pupils are also exposed to other gardening techniques like growing hydroponic plants and making of terrarium. The Gardening Club aims to promote a deeper appreciation of greenery amongst the pupils and foster a greater social interaction and bonding within the pupils in the CCA. It also aims to promote awareness of the diversity of plants and to educate pupils on ways to care for the different types of plants.
