In 2016, we begun the process of redesigning and renovating our garden to make it more accessible for students.
By creating raised garden beds, students can now plant and weed the vegetable plots with much greater ease.
The collective work of staff, parents and students has now transformed a difficult to maintain space into a practical learning area that is continually developing, and growing.
Students are planting class garden beds with vegetables, herbs and flowers and producing art works to beautify the space. The produce they grow will be used in cooking lessons as they learn about preparing healthy meals.
Mosaics, paintings and sculptures are being created to decorate the area and develop a sense of ownership.
Over the next few years we will integrate the use of our garden across the curriculum and make the area a place where students can both learn, relax and play. As with all gardens, watching it transform over time will be an exciting process.
Our garden committee is always looking for community volunteers who are willing to provide time or ideas for further develop the garden. If you are interested please speak to Cathie in the front office and she will put you in touch with the garden coordinator.
What a transformation!
