Sensory garden

Sensory Garden Working Bee

We greatly value the support of our school community and a recent example of this was a Working Bee to help create a Sensory Garden near the Reception classrooms.

Creating this garden has been possible with the financial assistance of a Woolworths Junior Landcare Grant which has provided the means to purchase the soil, mulch, garden beds and plants needed.  Our thanks to Woolworths for this grant.

Our students had been working together for a while to move a large amount of sand to the new sandpit location, leaving a large space prepared for the delivery of soil and mulch.  The community came together on a warm afternoon to move these resources into their new location and, although it was a lot of physical work, everyone had a great time and new friendships were formed.

It was heartwarming to have this opportunity once again for our wider community of parents, grandparents, staff and their families come together. 

Our thanks to everyone.
