What a wonderful afternoon we had planting the $2000 worth of plants that Warner’s Nursery have very kindly given to our school when we received the Victorian Schools Garden Award Grant earlier in the year.  We were thrilled to see such a beautiful variety of ground covers, shrubs and some established trees.  Our 90 grade 5 students all had the opportunity to plant a plant each within the new Outdoor Common Room garden space.  With the assistance of Ian, Andrew and Bonnie from Warner’s, the plants were placed and the planting began.  Thank you to Warner’s for supplying us with such beautiful plants!  They look amazing within the garden.  Thank you to Andy, Nicole and Ruby Coupar for assisting with planting.  Thank you to the parents, teachers and staff who also assisted the students to plant the garden.  It looks amazing!  We can’t wait until all the other items are installed including: giant marble run, Jenga, dominoes, blackboard, tee pees, mindfulness spaces and seats.  It is going to be a wonderful transformation of what was a very plain area.

Thank you to Matt and Jarrod McCrum for building two recycled pallet seats for our students to use within the new garden space.  Thank you to Andy Coupar for building a giant marble run which has been constructed with PVC plumbers pipe.  Thank you to Nicole and Ruby Coupar and some of the Art club students for painting both the pallet seats and marble run. We also now have outdoor naughts and crosses for the students to enjoy!

They are going to be wonderful within the garden!
