Vegie Garden

Our school vegetable garden is situated behind the Library. Here children have a chance to explore and experience the plant world with real life experiences. Children are involved in planting seeds, seedlings and caring for a range of plants while becoming more aware of their environment in a sustainable way.

The produce and experiences are utilized in a number of ways such as, promoting healthy eating, cooking lessons involving science and literacy, monitoring how and why plants grow covering Mathematics and Science.
Children often utilize the space for having lunch, listening to a story or for reading.
