Big thanks to Hong Kong Flower Show for organising such a nice competition!
Will the cabbage butterfly season start early this year? Two already and few of their caterpillars already spotted.
A squirrel is eating bark from one of our tree...
Gardening takes no break and Rana came in to water it during the school holidays! Thank you Partner!
Peak School parents and guests are invited to attend a presentation by our Environment and Sustainability teacher, Mr. Michel Maruca on Friday, 9 November from 8:45 - 9:45 a.m.
The International Panel of Climate Change (IPCC) published its most recent report in October. The climate change problem is true and is global. The latest report portrays a dark future for our civilization, should the current trends pursue in just a very few years. In order to understand the scope, nature and pace of this challenge, Peak School backs up the report and invites its community to go through the report together. Block the date in your calendars and prepare all the questions you wish to ask. It will also be an occasion for Peak School to test some of the responses it drafted to answer this challenge.
While changing the soil of an old pot, students have discovered a hammer-head platelminto. One of the most amazing animal on Earth... and on space as the species of its family are used a lot by space researchers (more info here).
Our school bug-expert (thank you Craig!) have cross-checked if this specie was not invasive as they are known to eat earthworm. It would have been a risk for our garden and our island.
But no worries, our new friend is part of PSWS!
This year, we are looking for the best pots for our students' garden. Not too heavy but not too small. Not biodegradable but not environmentally harmful. Should we go up-cycling or invest in expensive professional pots? Choices are not many. Hence we have decided a trial-and-error approach. We'll test all ideas this year to confirm which one(s) is the best match for our garden practice.
