Happy Gardening in Pre-School!


Summer is around the corner and over the last few weeks the Pre-School children have been preparing the vegetable garden.   Pre-School has had plenty of New World Little Garden seedlings donated to them by families and friends of the school. These have been carefully tended by the children and some have already been planted into our garden box.   Yesterday, Mr Aaron and Miss Libby took a group of children to Bunnings at Tower Junction to purchase some new plants.  Bunnings gave us a lesson in planting parsley and lettuces.  The children had to wear masks when using the potting mix, to ensure they didn't breathe in anything unwanted.      After they had planted and decorated their pots we were able to walk around the garden centre and pick some new plants.  Rhubarb, sweet peas and daisies were chosen to help brighten up our Pre-School.Once back at Pre-School they were carefully planted into our garden and given a very generous watering.    We will keep you posted on their growth.
