Beaconhouse School System,Pakistan

The Beaconhouse School System has risen from its modest beginnings in 1975 as Les Anges Montessori Academy to become a major force in the education world.

 With an ever-expanding base, already established in the UK, Malaysia, the Philippines, Pakistan, the UAE, Oman, Belgium and Thailand, Beaconhouse is one of the largest private school networks in the world.

The school system has several branches throughout Pakistan and we represent Defence Ring Road Campus from Lahore, Pakistan. Our branch caters to students from ages 3 – 16 and offers both Matriculation and Cambridge programs.

We collaborated with the ONYX from City of Knowledge Academy, Ijebu-Ode, Ogun State, Nigeria for the ISA activity titled: Compost Chronicles.

The students participated actively to learn and make their own organic compost at home and later used it to fertilize soil. The activity was supposed to be done on school premises but due to the pandemic, we reverted to remote learning. However, this did not water down our spirits and our students continued working under their teachers’ guidance to complete the ISA project .

Compost-Importance And Benefits.

The importance and benefit of compost is enormous. Some of the benefits includes;

  • Enriches soil, helping retain moisture and suppress plant diseases and pests.
  • Reduces the need for chemical fertilizers.
  • Encourages the production of beneficial bacteria and fungi that break down organic matter to create humus, a rich nutrient-filled material.
  • Reduces methane emissions from landfills and lowers your carbon footprint.

Compost

Compost is made by decomposing organic materials into simpler organic and inorganic compounds in a process called composting. This process recycles various organic materials otherwise regarded as waste products.
