This preschool in Somerset West, Cape Town is involving their little learners in a new project.
Justine Renault, director and principal of Kids Company in Somerset West, explains how the school has adapted the basins to repurpose the washing water for the garden.
She says by the end of last year the school playground looked like a wasteland. They decided to lay lawn but needed to find a method of keeping it alive without breaking water restrictions.
We let the water run through the basins and the children are expected to carry the buckets outside.— Justine Renault, director and principal of Kids Company in Somerset West
One of the teachers came up with the idea of placing hula hoops over areas of grass that need particular attention...and the kids carry buckets and water them.
