At recess time, we harvested the zucchinis from our school community garden.  Twenty four excited garden club students enjoyed making zucchini soup during lunchtime. They assisted with chopping, grating, mixing and cooking our zucchini soup.  It tasted delicious! Thank you to Mrs. Musco, Miss Cooper and Mrs. McCrum for helping with the cooking. We can’t wait to cook again!

We had a really enjoyable afternoon working in the garden. A very BIG THANK YOU to the following families, children and staff who assisted at the working bee: Olivia W, Laura W, Scott R, Annabella R, Hannah S, Peter S, Rhianna G, Max G, Regan G, Maddylin G, Jade T, Alexa T, Miss Cooper, Mrs Muccignatt, Callum G, Mrs Naismith, Mr Pryor, Mrs Chandler, Miss Quelch, Tara B, Enri S, Kirana S and Mrs. McCrum. We moved soil to top up the digging box, filled some other boxes, weeded the big garen beds, placed mulch in boxes, and moved some of the old compost down to our new composting area. The garden is looking fantastic and the students are enjoying the opportunity to work in this space. We also found 3 frogs in our garden which shows how healthy our garden is.
