A Teachers TV programme. Find out how one school in Morocco is using a grove of olive trees planted in their school playground to teach students about maths. The students care for the trees, harvest the oil, visit the camel-driven olive press and sell the resulting oil in their local market, all using maths. The teachers at Sidi Bouskri School believe the project helps pupils to understand the link between their lives and the work they do in the classroom. It also helps them develop positive relationships with the school and its natural environment. The project is part of the Moroccan government's initiative to encourage schools to become more involved in their local community and to make use of local resources in their teaching.
