The Environment Team have been busy BAKING and learning about the pros and cons of PALM OIL, while Early Stage 1 discovered that plants need air, sunlight and water to survive, so they gave the plants and the potatoes, a good drink and will continue to watch them thrive!

Small, delectable pieces of fruit and vegetables are enjoyed by students at St Bernadette's for their Crunch and Sip sessions and the scraps are placed in the Compost Bin, which is then given a good spin, to thoroughly mix the contents!

As the school year winds down, the festive season goes into full swing and without realising it a different sort of treadmill takes over … for a wonderful reflection on “The Gift of Time” go into the City of Sydney and pause for a while as you view the Christmas Light Show at St Mary’s Cathedral … it is interesting to observe that the little girl in red, ends up in a beautiful garden, to show adults a simple and easy way to de-stress! As students at St Bernadette’s know, the garden is the place to be, anytime of the year ... and don't forget to add some tasty Cherry Tomatoes to the Christmas Table!

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!
