Dear Parents, Students, Carers and our Community,
We had a wonderful WORKING BEE on Sunday with many many hands, making the tasks disappear! We moved 10 cubic metres of mulch onto existing garden beds, weeded, pruned, swept and tamed the over growing ‘strappy’ plants (Dieties) that are popular around our school. In Jack's Paddock, teams of parents and children with wheelbarrows and rakes moved 20 cubic metres of Tuscan Topping to redefine the pathways as per our Sensory Garden plan. It looks wonderful!
We almost had an archaelogical dig with parents and children uncovering the ‘tactile path’ from a time gone bye. I have since found out the Tactile Path was an art project with each class contributing to a section. It was a wonderful re-discovery, and we were all very excited!
My grateful thanks to all parents, School Councillors, and children who gave up a precious Sunday morning to assist and to Jarrod Sutton who rescued me and cooked an exceptional BBQ. I especially acknowledge and thank Adam Wilson (father of Sienna and Jackson) for his skilled work in the ‘scaping’ of this area, and the use of his equipment which enabled completion on the day. Thank-you also to partner Emily for covering Adam’s time away from the family. Your direction Adam, enabled many!
We are awaiting six (6) wooden fruit boxes to settle into the area to develop as our ‘wicker beds’ which will be the return of the ‘veggie patch’ for growing some food and flowers. Know how to set up a ‘wicker bed’? Let us know we will need your expertise!
Finally I have uploaded some photos of the Working Bee in a ‘montage’ below.
