Hyderabad, 13th April 2023: Orchids The International School Inaugurated the largest Polyhouse facility and a New Auditorium at its Bachupally branch.
The horticulture curriculum is titled ‘Little Green Fingers’. It will be taught for students from Grade 1 to 10 and will include both theory and practical classes. The students of each grade will have one class per week to learn about different aspects of horticulture.
The chief guest did a campus tour and interacted with the students and said “Students at Orchids The International School are highly talented and they are getting good opportunity to observe, explore and learn such unique concepts like horticulture and robotics, which brings holistic development of the child and helps to build a confident personality. This is the first school in the city to open such a large-scale polyhouse and I am happy to extend my support to this unique initiative.
While speaking about the program, Dr. N Aruna Rao, Principal, Orchids The International School, Bachupally said, “We aim to nurture a sense of sustenance and conservation among the students. The horticulture curriculum is a step in that direction. Apart from learning the science behind the growth of plants, children will also learn to harvest these plants and sell them in the market through our budding Farmer’s market. This gives them dual benefits of learning horticulture along with financial literacy curriculum. We are getting an overwhelming response from children as well as parents for our horticulture initiative.”
