Welcome back to everyone for Term 3 and a big welcome to Rylee, our new student.
With a short but busy term ahead, here are some of the things we are working on.
THEME - Think Global Act Local. Continuing on from last term, we are investigating ways to get our nursery/glass house area up and running in a more efficient way. Our glasshouse, that we have been fundraising for all year, is on its way in being built. Many thanks to the Lions and Morris for all the time they are putting in to get it built. It is a much bigger job than any of us anticipated.
IDEAS from the students include, outfitting the glasshouse with a watering system.. shelves etc, deciding on the best seedlings to grow and when, re doing the garden beds and building them up to produce more efficiently, using the many plastic pots we have , making bio-degradable seedling pots, making bird scarers, designing and making plant covers and having the worm farm running more effectively.. WHEW!!!! lots of wonderful ideas, not to forget the budgeting that will go with this. Some students are working through how to do formulas to create a budgeting spreadsheet.
CROSS COUNTRY- training has started for this which will happen in week 5. The CHOIR is practising and is ready to perform in the Kids for Kids concert in Hamilton next Thursday.
One thing I forgot was the Publicity group for the above project.. they will also be taking over this blog so WATCH THIS SPACE.
PROFILE BOOKS go out at the end of this week. Don't forget parents , you are always welcome to call in anytime.
Until next time Whaea and the new team for the blog.
