We had a beautiful sunny day to plant over 100 native plants in the Sensory Garden.  Some of the garden club students planted our new plants with assistance from Pat from Toyota Berwick.  Toyota Berwick sponsored the day and provided T shirts, gloves and the plants.  Bunnings Fountain Gate provided seeds, seedlings and soil for all grades to plant into a paper recycled pot.  We thank Bunnings and Fountain Gate for their generosity and assistance on the day. We had a wonderful day and enjoyed being in the outdoors!

Our second ambassador day was spent at the Yellingbo nursery.  The students learnt about the different species of plants, how to plant seeds, seedlings and propogate plants.  The ambassadors enjoyed working with a horticulturalist and with Cecilia.  They viewed the hot houses and the different types of seeds and how they are harvested.

This year, Berwick Lodge Primary school are participating in the Helmeted Honey Eater ambassador program.  Students in grade 4 and 5 participated in a presentation by Cecilia from Yellingbo Nature reserve to educate our students about the critically endangered species.  Interested students applied to become an ambassador.  This year we have four ambassadors – Malaika and Lachlan from grade 4, Max and Chelsea from grade 5.  On their first visit to Yellingbo Nature Reserve, they learnt about the critically endangered bird, habitat, food, predators and also worked with Bruce Quinn, ornithologist who has wealth of knowledge about birds.  We had a great day working with Cecilia and were very lucky to see the Helmeted Honey eater in the wild! The ambassadors learn about the species and then as ambassadors, share their learning with the school community.

Grades enjoy exploring and planting in the Community Garden.  The garden is always changing and you never know what you might discover! Some students found slugs, snails, worms, bugs, caterpillars and even a few frogs!

Our new Sensory garden is a wonderful place to enjoy and explore.  All students have had the opportunity to adopt a plant and then plant this within the garden.

Thank you to everyone who came and helped weed and tidy our school community garden.  Many hands make light work and now we can start planting in grade boxes.  We enjoyed the sunshine, laughs and working together.
