Going green

Tending the Community Garden

Community Garden

Have you seen the two new garden beds in the playground near the fixed equipment? They are the work of the great team who showed up for the Community Garden work bee during 2009. Their hard work has created a terrific resource for the students who have been busy planting seedlings, watering the plants, weeding the gardens and finally harvesting the healthy produce. Some classes have made some delicious recipes with the garden's produce.

 

School environmental management plans work across the key learning areas of the curriculum and the whole school community.

We start with local sustainability and over time develop student understanding of how their work contributes globally.

Students and staff manage, observe and monitor our school's resources, waste and physical surroundings, then take on activities to protect and improve our school and the local environment.

Your child will develop an understanding about:

  • the relationship between human activities and natural systems
  • sustainable management of the earth's resources
  • the inter-related nature of processes in the natural environment

We encourage you to support your child's 'going green' activities, and to help them to learn to care for the environment as part of their everyday lives.
