Sao Sokunthea visited family homes throughout Sambok Ork reminding them of Matai CORDE and encouraged 5 more families to send their children to Matai.

World Environment Day at UniED 2011

On Sunday 5th June 2011, our teachers and over 30 students came to UniED to work happily on improving the universities grounds for World Environment Day (WED). We were divided into 6 groups. One group beautified the building while three groups made a garden in front of the building and planted fruit, vegetables and flowers. The last two groups used the waste like grass from the garden preparation, dried leaves and other vegetables to make a compost fertilizer. We particularly enjoyed working together with our teachers.
