Latest from Year 4
Term 1 has been an immensely busy yet satisfying time for the Year 4 classes. The students have dived into the Sustainability program with great enthusiasm. Our weekly sessions have been a wonderful time for them to build and nurture relationships whilst fostering a strong sense of wellbeing and community. The veggie garden has been a haven in which students have been able to enjoy time together, getting their hands in the soil and gaining an understanding of the different elements required to grow and nurture a diverse range of produce. By far, the most noticeable element when one enters the garden has been our impressive pumpkin patch. The students planted pumpkin seeds on Step Up Day in 2018 and were amazed to see the vibrant jungle they produced over the holidays. The pumpkins have provided a valuable way for the students to collect and measure data – some of them weighing over 20kg! Harvesting them was a fun and challenging activity enjoyed by all.
