Abstract

A peaceful and tranquil environment can influence the school landscape by assisting the learning process either directly or indirectly, through various methods, such as providing an area or place for a variety of activities, to socialize, to interact and to do revisions outside the classroom. The purpose of this research is to determine the role or function of the school's landscape in preserving the environment at the school level. For this reason, primary data were collected from the surrounding schools located in Klang Valley, Malaysia that were chosen randomly. Secondary data were obtained from various relevant agencies. Structured interviews were conducted with the higher management of the schools concerned with regards to the development, management of landscape and the contribution of soft and hard landscapes in the learning process. The outcome of the research indicates that the landscape functions in assisting the learning process and nourishes the awareness of the students for their affection towards natural environment. This study has proven that landscape plays an important role in the learning process and nourishes the students' awareness in appreciating the environment beginning at the school level. Thus, the school has to take the necessary initiatives by way of increasing soft landscapes such as planting more shaded trees; hard landscapes such as gazebos, garden chairs and tables as well as man-made landscapes such as fish ponds, waterfalls and fountains which could be used by the students and teachers in the learning process and to encourage them to appreciate the environment.
