Pumpkins Arrive!

Pumpkins Arrive!

Cultivating an interest in nature.

The Vegetable patch blossomed over the summer period and surprised our growers on return to school. Not only did the children learn about planting with Ewan, Killian and Elva's mum,  Alyson Findlay-Byrne while planting the vegetable patch. They also got to see the fruit of their labours preparing vegetables as part of "practical life" with Hayley and shared them amoungst their friends thus practicing their "Grace and Courtsey" skills.

Welcome to our new students!
