|Rachel was our guest speaker from Bunnings who came to school on Wednesday and spoke to us about managing an environment. We learned some handy hints on how to manage our garden that we’re developing outside our science room – particularly weed management!
The contribution from Rachel and Bunnings was much appreciated as it enhanced our learning, but the time spent was also a positive reflection on the knowledge our year 4s already have about such matters. They engaged in the activities in a way that represented GPS as students of the highest calibre.
The garden continues to progress (slowly over the winter months!), our hedge has undergone its first hair-cut and the durantas which we are growing as topiaries have had their trunks kept bare of new shoots.
