Waterwise Classes

The Waterwise classes have focussed on the importance of ground water, particularly in relation to its larger role in ecosystems and we have been learning about aquifers and bores. During Waterwise lessons we have been documenting and monitoring the birds, animals, insects and mini-beasts that call our school grounds ‘home’. These studies will assist in creating strategies to increase the biodiversity that surrounds us.

Kitchen Garden

Our kitchen garden has been prolific. We have harvested a phenomenal 100kg of produce including sweet potatoes, mandarins and Jerusalem artichokes. We have also been busy building several large ‘berry beds’ complete with recycled bike wheel trellises and look forward to making and selling our inaugural berry jam around Christmas time. These beds will give us greater food production and allow us to explore perennial climbers like berries, kiwifruit and chokos in greater depth.
