Sowing the seeds of life-long learning and growth 

Students at Apeejay School, Noida embark on an enriching experience, cultivating life skills through the ‘Seed to Sandwich’ activity



In a steadfast commitment to providing students with holistic and practical learning experiences, Apeejay School, Noida recently concluded a transformative initiative – the ‘Seed to Sandwich’ activity. This hands-on project aimed not only to impart knowledge but also to instill valuable life skills among the participating students.

The journey commenced with the active participation of enthusiastic students of classes 5 A and 5 B in a gardening activity within the school premises. Guided by the expertise of the school gardener, the students sowed the seeds of various vegetables, gaining insights into the correct season and method of sowing. This initial phase fostered a sense of connection with nature, as students expressed their gratitude to the gardener for sharing valuable insights into the art of seed planting.

As the weeks unfolded, the students revisited the gardening area, diligently watering the plants and witnessing the gradual growth of their efforts. Their dedication bore fruit, quite literally, as they harvested spinach, a tangible outcome of their commitment and hard work.

The learning journey took a delicious turn as the students engaged in a fire-less cooking activity. Using the freshly harvested spinach, they crafted healthy sandwiches, showcasing not only their culinary skills but also their understanding of the farm-to-table concept.

The joy of creating something from scratch was further enhanced as they proudly served their sandwiches to the Principal, Vice-Principal, Primary Incharge, and Pre-Primary Incharge of the school. The school administrators lauded the students for their hard work and the delectable outcome of their efforts.

Participating in the ‘Seed to Sandwich’ activity instilled a profound sense of accomplishment among the students. Beyond learning about gardening and cooking, they gained confidence and enthusiasm to undertake similar initiatives independently. 

This initiative not only sowed the seeds of vegetables but also planted the seeds of lifelong skills and a passion for sustainable living. As the students continue to nurture their gardens, they are cultivating not only plants but also the foundations of responsibility, teamwork, and a deeper connection with the world around them.
