Year 3 and 4 Gardening Program

Tuesday, March 21, 2023

This year gardening will be part of our curriculum for our Year 3 and 4 students. Not only will our students learn about basic gardening concepts, they will also develop additional skills for living and learning that can last a lifetime. Our garden is about more than growing vegetables, it is an outdoor living classroom that encourages learning in the outdoors, a healthy lifestyle and sustainable living. Activities are also focused on sustainability and environmental awareness.

Student learning Includes:

  • Soil health and biology
  • Compost, weeding, and recycling
  • Lifecycles – from planting a seed, growing the plant, harvesting and eating, to collecting the seed for next year’s use
  • Bugs – beneficial and pests

Our garden is a highlight for many of our students and encourages personal growth, by providing a positive space to explore, belong and just be.

During this term we have been working hard to maintain our school garden. We have planted a variety of vegetables including carrots, celery, broccoli, cabbages and broad beans. We look forward to a plentiful harvest in the weeks to come.

- Mr Blanco, Ms Gawro and Ms Petraki
