The, Support Sensory Learning Garden Project, is evolving to be an enjoyable attribute to the Support classes at Kandos High School.
The garden is an excellent example of authentic, relevant, significant learning in many key learning areas and helps increase the healthy choices made by students.
Students from groups Acacia, Banksia and Wambinya, have been working hard this term to establish their vegetable gardens, funded by the Mid-Western Regional Council.
The gardens were originally created by the students with a helping hand from some Bunning’s staff at the start of the term.
On February 14 we saw love being spread around the support unit gardens.
Kerry and Gaven from Bunnings Mudgee came to help with establishing the raised gardens.
It was a wonderful day and the students learnt about soil preparation, planting and plant selections.
The session was finished off with a delicious BBQ.
We would like to thank Bunnings for their donations of vegetable seedlings, fertiliser and mulch.
Students have also been busily refurbishing a pre-loved composter, which was kindly donated by local farmers, Leigh-Ann and Steven Thorn.
The next stage of the garden project will include the installation of four wine barrel platers, which will accommodate citrus trees, succulents and flowering plants.
