HSBC Malta Foundation renews support for school’s gardens


The HSBC Malta Foundation has renewed its support for the vertical gardens and green wall project set up at St. Clare College Primary School in Gźira. The Foundation has been supporting this project, which helps children to learn about growing plants and living a more sustainable life, for three years.

Thanks to the support provided by the HSBC Malta Foundation and the ongoing work and commitment of staff and pupils at the school, the main vertical garden within the yard has continued to thrive and attract wildlife. In addition to the main yard, smaller green walls are continuously maintained in the school’s classrooms, helping children to learn about herbs, plants and the growing of food.

Glenn Buġeja, Corporate Sustainability Manager at HSBC Bank Malta said: “Bringing nature closer to students can empower them with useful skills for life. They can become the protagonists in steering our world towards a greener, more sustainable future. HSBC Malta has long been committed towards making positive change in our environment and continues to support projects like this across the country.”

Jonathan Attard, Head College Network at St Clare College, said, “Green spaces have a clear and obvious positive impact on schools and, more importantly on the wellbeing of our students. I greatly appreciate the work of all the staff and children as well as the support given by the HSBC Malta Foundation to make this project a reality. I look forward to similar collaborations at other schools within the college network.”
