farm-to-school-at-ssisThis year, Shanghai Singapore International School (SSIS) Minhang Campus joined their Xuhui Campus in providing a ‘Farm to School’ opportunity for the students. The Farm to School project is a collaboration between SSIS and the Mahota Farm. Through this project, the students are involved in creating and maintaining an organic farm on the campus. This whole-school approach to farming enables integration of farming experiences into the curriculum. The school farm provides the ideal context to enrich ‘learning beyond the classroom’, and the students have fun learning many different skills associated with environmental sustainability.

Dr. Claudia Berner, the Head of School at SSIS, believes that the students will learn about delayed gratification from their involvement with the Farm to School project. “By allowing the students to grow their own food, it educates them about sustaining long-term goals and understanding the intrinsic value of harvesting their hard work.”
