Over the Christmas break we were once again so very grateful for the numerous families who volunteered their time to help keep our plants, chickens and worms alive. Thank you so much to the Brueckner, Keser, Ronn, Palmer, Hyslop, Martinec, Kuhn, Pike, Rotty, Allenby, Netherway, Daly, Eales, Parson, Watson and Share families. Your generous support was greatly appreicated!
We also planted 24 red Bottle Brushes to create a hedge along the Brighton Rd fence and a new large tree in the enchanted garden – Ulmus Parvifolia, also known as Chinese Elm. It is a fast-growing tree which can grow up to 15m in height and 10m in canopy widths, hopefully giving our children lots of shade while enjoying nature play in the garden. Although the hedge suffered severely during the hot period over the holidays, every single plant has beautiful new growth coming through and we are very hopeful that they will all survive and flourish. Thank you to the Grade 6s from 2017 for planting the hedge, it is a beautiful legacy you have created for many children to enjoy.
