Regional Catchment Field Day!
On 26 October 5B went to Plumpton Park to learn about the environment. The first activity we did was to plant Kangaroo Grass in pots for the Park. Then we went on a bush walk to learn the names of trees, such as iron bark and gum trees!
We saw how much pollution there was in the dam and were sad to learn that a lizard died in that unhealthy environment!
We were given some kangaroo grasses to take back to school and plant around our kitchen garden, which is flourishing due to the Spring rain!
