The School Principal and Students are planting the trees
On Thursday, February 04, 2010 all the students and the school principal were deciding to take the mango tree, the avocado tree, Ranbutan tree and Durian tree to plant surrounding school. As we know Cambodia is an agricultural country most of the people they are farmers and they usually do the farm to adopt their family condition. So the Vogel School is also a sample of other schools in Ratanakiri province to push the agriculture to be progressive.
The below picture are activities while the school principle and schoolchildren were planting the trees.
Remember that before we plant the tree we need to decorate the square to be ready. The square holes was dug two weeks ago. After digging we need to burn the square hole to make more fertilized soils. Below are the squares which the schoolchildren dug last two weeks and start to plant today.
The School Principal guided and introduced his students about the process to plant the threes. He is really specialist about agriculture. Below pics are the activities while they were looking at their school principal decorating the square hole, moreover in the middle pic showed about the school principal was putting the anti-termite to protect termite.
Therefore they need to watering into the square holes to make the ground safe for planting the trees. Below pics are the activities of the students who trying to get the water from the well to watering the square holes:
After they have already watering into the square hole they need to take something like gravels and the rubies that are not fertilized soil. Below are pics of the activities while they were taking something from the square hole:
At the same time of planting the trees, some of the students they went to cut the small woods to stick up around the square hole to protest from the animals. Below are pics of the activities while they were cutting the small woods to protect their trees.
Here are the activities while they were together planting the trees. The school principal is responsible to control and lead the students to plant the trees and tell them how to protect the tree as good. At that time too the students seem understand well and they can plant by themselves.
These are the achievements of the school principal and schoolchildren, they tried very hard since last two weeks till today. Below are the activities and photos of the trees which they have already planted.
