Congratulations Berwick Lodge for receiving a Junior Landcare Biodiversity Grant!  This will assist with completing the final part of the Sensory Garden including the dinosaur dig and interpretive signage to educate our students and community.  Without the grants, we wouldn’t have the fantastic garden spaces we have today!  Thankyou to Junior Landcare for supporting our project!

Our beautiful Sensory Garden is certainly a wonderful space to explore and enjoy.  All our plants are growing and we have a fantastic area to learn, play and discover with nature.  Can you remember what it looked like as the garden was built?

On the 24th August our four Helmeted Honeyeater ambassadors – Nathan, Leyla, Ruby and Tyler enjoyed visiting the Yellingbo community nursery to work with Cecilia the education officer and Michele, the horticulturalist.  They planted seeds, seedlings and learnt about the native habitat that the critically endangered species lives within.  It was a wonderful day for everyone!

Spring Planting in Community Garden

This week many grades have enjoyed planting in the Community Garden.  We have been weeding grade boxes and planting a variety of vegetables and herbs.  Kasandra from Bunnings Fountain Gate assisted our Prep students to plant.  2E and other grades enjoyed planting lots of vegetables and learning about worms. We have enjoyed exploring the garden and investigating what is growing.
