Yesterday afternoon the Gibraltar Botanical Gardens officially launched their Natural Learning Centre which, for a number of weeks now, has centered around educating young school children on ‘all sorts of matters relating to our environment’.
The scheme, the brainchild of Botanical Gardens staff member Chris Guilder has received an enormous amount of positive feedback from the youngsters involved, as well as parents. So much so that a waiting list has been compiled for other children who want to partake in the scheme. The children currently involved with the Learning Centre are aged 11 and attend Bishop Fitzgerald School.
