Learners, staff embrace the green

Nature is life.

Learners and employees at Brightbridge Academy in Sunward Park got their hands muddy in honour of World Plant Appreciation Day on April 12.

The day began with digging, planting and dancing amid the fluttering of leaves and the birds chirping.
“We are sowing seeds of love, gratitude and hope for a greener, brighter future,” said Chilindi Venter, the campus head.

According to Venter, Plant Appreciation Day was not just about getting their hands dirty, although that seemed like the fun part. For Brightbridge, it marked a time to pause, reflect and marvel at the wonders of the natural world surrounding them.

She also said Brightbridge owns its own Go Green Garden.

“It is a reminder that we are all stewards of this planet, and each little seed we plant is a promise to nurture to protect our environment.”

The campus demonstrated that even the tiniest foot could leave a footprint by allowing the learners to participate.
They met the lesson’s objectives, including that plants can teach patience and resilience and help establish a profound interconnectedness with all living things.

Nature conservationist Safiyya Hattas said we can celebrate Plant Appreciation Day by planting indigenous plants or creating a green space in our homes.
