Green Infrastructure at SNC Mgarr Primary School

Mgarr Primary School has just installed a “living wall”. This includes a timed irrigation system and the school also managed to secure four months free maintenance from supplier – until the plants are flourishing and well established. Staff worked on this project with the gardening section at MFED in order to get the best results possible. This will ensure that project is maintained and well taken care of. Students can experience interactive learning through plant design, fabrication and gain exposure to nature. This encourages environmental perspectives at the school. Stress levels often run high in schools and living walls naturally act as a catalyst to reduce this. Studies show that greenery improves the overall educational experience for children and teachers alike. Living walls also allow students to better understand nature’s role in STEAM fields, all in one place. This is another project funded by GAL Majjistral.
