Under the guidance of their teachers, our young learners utilized simple materials such as coconut shells and jute twines to create eco-friendly bird feeders. By avoiding paint and focusing on natural materials, they ensured the safety and comfort of our feathered friends.

Teamwork and Creativity: Students worked in groups, some hanging multiple feeders on tree branches, others designing their coconut shells to look like cozy bird homes.
Observation and Interaction: After installing their bird feeders around the campus, students spent the day watching various birds visit, enhancing their understanding of wildlife conservation.
