"Petunias - pretty as a picture!"



This week the garden was as “pretty as a picture” adorned by petunias, which were donations for the Fete! The Parsley seeds were saved for replanting, a juicy cherry Tomato picked and quickly devoured and for Early Stage One, it was time to check on the progress of their Radish seeds!

"There is a time for planting and a time for pulling up!"


 
The students gravitated towards the garden to remember ‘JULIAN’, their classmate and friend! They found comfort in renewing a garden bed and planting it out with Snow Peas! The sound of water flowing and the rake swishing the fallen dead leaves along the path, was a symbol of cleansing, growth and new life! Rest in Peace, Julian … you will always be remembered at our school!
