Enjoy this recent interview with Pak Wayan Sudana, just one of the many grounds staff who make MSB a lush haven of greenery and beauty every day. 

Q: Pak Wayan, how long have you been part of the Gardening team at this school?
A: I’ve been working at Montessori School Bali from August 2011. So it’s been 13 years.

Q: What changes have you noticed in the grounds over the years of working at the school?
A: As someone who has dedicated years to nurturing the grounds of our school as a member of the gardening staff, the evolution of certain aspects has been unmistakable. With the patience and consistency exhibited by our ground team, especially the dedicated garden staff, we can now fully appreciate the beautiful environment surrounding the school. The education provided by our teachers not only imparts knowledge but also inspires students to actively engage in caring for the plants and the school garden.

Q: Can you tell us about your daily routine, from when you arrive at school to work until you leave?
A: My main focus is cleaning and taking care of the school’s gardens, as well as helping other team members and staff in order to be part of a good teamwork.

Q: How do you see the importance of a well-maintained garden in creating an inspiring and comfortable learning environment for all school members?
A: A well-maintained garden serves as a captivating reflection of the school’s beauty and attention to detail. The lush greenery, vibrant blooms, and harmonious design not only enhance the aesthetics of the campus but also create a serene and inviting atmosphere for students, staff, and visitors alike.

Q: What challenges do you face in caring for a school garden, especially in the face of changes in weather or seasons?
A: We understand that MSB embraces the concept of sustainability, and we make concerted efforts to responsibly manage water usage, particularly during the dry season. We meticulously regulate water usage and prioritize areas or plants that require additional care.
