Outdoor Learning Zone – July 09 Update

July 2nd, 2009

P120609_15.02[01]It’s now July and we are only a few weeks away from completing our first busy year on “the farm”. Our students started the year with just a flat area of grass and a few ideas. We now have a polytunnel, chicken coops, raised beds and a goat house.  The students built everything from scratch, and since then, have successfully grown all sorts of vegetables, including potatoes, cabbage, lettuce, tomatoes, carrots, onions and garlic to name but a few. Our livestock has grown from a rabbit and three guinea pigs, to four guinea pigs, two rabbits, two goats and twelve chickens! We also have two flower beds outside our reception thanks to some hard work from our Year 9 group.

One student from our Year 11, Jeddy Trembath, was selected for his hard work, enthusiasm and excellent attendance. For this, he received two fruit bushes from Mr Warren.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the students and staff involved over the past year for all their work, and wish our Year 11 students all the best as they move on. I hope that those working on “the farm” in September are looking forward to another fruitful and productive year!
