Year 2 students prepare rice seedlings for their young kindergarten friends for tomorrow’s annual rice planting. This traditional technique compacts soil into mud balls to that the rice plants can be thrown into the field instead of pushed into the ground. Easier for little hands!

Year 5 students preparing our fields for rice planting later this month. Panyaden’s Life Skills programme integrates practical skills (like how to use a hoe), science and social science (the rice plant life cycle and crop production) and essential personal qualities like perseverance, patience, teamwork and valuing the work of others (such as the farmers who work in the hot sun to produce the food that we eat). Skills for Life!
