On Thursday 8th July we held a planting day to add more natives to our Wilderness Area here at school. We were lucky enough to be awarded a grant through Horizons to be able to complete this activity.

In Term 1 we had prepared by making a plan for the area about what plants we’d like and where would be best to plant them. Then at the end of Term 2 we invited members of our community to help us with planting. Following this we held a short ceremony to mark the occasion and afterwards it was back to the classroom for some delicious soup and bread.

Thank you to all the parents, grandparents and community members who joined us and a BIG BIG thank you to Rowena and Sarah from Horizons EnviroSchool for their help. We look forward to watching our trees and plants grow over the next few years, much like some of our parents did when the first Wilderness Area was planted.
