Problem Bali, Green School needs help in building a learning kitchen. Create a learning kitchen where the students there learn while making food. Introduce the importance of freshness.
What is the learning education in the Green School like?
Although Green School doesn’t conform to most people’s mental image of what a school is meant to look like, we are committed to providing an internationally recognized academic education that gives our students the ability to be competitive and successful in the wider world.
You’ll find all of the traditional subjects here, up and down the grade levels, offered through the Cambridge International curriculum framework. The difference at Green School is that academics come wrapped in rich layers of experiential, environmental, and entrepreneurial learning and the creative arts. In the process we hope to create more authentic motivations for learning, and at the same time expand our students’ sense of global citizenship and environmental responsibility while exposing them to different possibilities for how we live and grow as a fragile planet.
Comparing with Republic Polytechnic & Bali Green School.
Green School only have a hot kitchen.
Allows their students to go out in the open and interact with the ingredients that they are growing in the school.
Eco-friendly to the environment. Uses wood as their source of fire for cooking.
Have everything the students need. Which includes Hot & cold kitchen.
Does not allow their student to go out in the open and explore themselves. Students learn through technologies.
Not that eco-friendly. Uses induction cooking through out the kitchen. Which causes high in electricity usage.
