Students at Nturumeti Primary School are growing watermelons alongside timber and fruit trees as part of the Healthy Learning programme aimed at improving teaching, learning and nutrition. This story is an exemple of the use of practical activities to improve teaching and learning as well as the health and nutrition status of school children. Nturumeti Primary School, located in a remote area of Kenya, has successfully contextualized this approach by making the projects participatory - thereby promoting learning by pupils, teachers and parents. Teachers and pupils have actively been using agroforestry learning materials to improve the projects as well as the school's academic performance. This material is an useful tool for teachers in rural areas.
