Marty's Garden is Back


Our  Student Representative Council have brought Marty’s Garden back to life. As a part of the SRC initiative, our students have helped rebuild our school vegetable garden.

We received an incredible donation of butterfly attracting plants, vegetables, herbs, potting mix and even a mandarin tree from Bunnings Warehouse Marion after Mrs. Howard-Jones' Year 6 class wrote persuasive letters seeking their help. Sally from Bunnings Warehouse came to deliver all the donations to 6RH on Wednesday afternoon. The students were all over joyed to receive them and see their persuasive language was successful!

Thursday morning the SRC Students from Semester One and Two all enjoyed planting the herbs, vegetables and creating a butterfly garden and strawberry patch. We are looking forward to enjoying all the delicious produce that the garden will provide and linking our learning with the curriculum.
