Year 5 Service for others project

The Year 5s would like to thank you for all the donations that are coming in for our three causes. Please keep them coming! We will be creating the gift boxes next Friday. Any spare shoe-boxes would be a great help, they can be left at the office next to the donation boxes

The Patch

Thank you to everyone for the most amazing support of the last Patch Harvest Market stall!! We hope all the produce tasted delicious! The money raised from the stall goes directly back into maintaining the Patch, including items like seeds, soil and fertiliser.

We would like to encourage the school community to shop our produce at times between stalls too.  If you see something in the patch that you would like to use, please help yourself. We ask if you are doing this, to pop a donation into the ‘Jar’ (on the top shelf) in the white cupboard near the entrance to the garden and corridor. 

The garden is enjoying Spring and all of the attention, thanks to Mel Capper and  all the families who stop to water the plants. You might be seeing some strawberries, sunflowers, passionfruit, carrots, beetroot, rhubarb (green variety), beans, kale, spinach, rosemary, sage, thyme, parsley and mint. Thank you also for supervising the children around the garden beds. It’s encouraging to see the children enjoying the garden by watering and sampling the produce (such as trying the herbs and peas/beans).

Thanks to those who have continued to put food into our worm farm, including the canteen. A reminder to please leave out citrus, onion, garlic, chilli, dairy, meat, bones, fish and oil. 

NEXT MARKET DAY: Week 9 Friday 7th Dec after school (outside the music room). A gold coin donation for our fresh produce.  We will be harvesting as much as possible before the summer holidays so please come along!
