With so many beautiful plants in full bloom the Kandos High sensory garden is providing a wonderful, outdoor learning space for support students to enjoy as part of their day to day curriculum.
Staff are implementing outdoor lessons in History, Aboriginal Studies and Science, Agricultural Studies to encourage student engagement to learning.
This initiative has assisted students to recognise the rewards of their previous hard work during the design and construction stage of this learning space and promoting positive relationships and responsible learners.
A small group of about 20 members, of the Kids and Carers Support Group Kandos Rylstone Inc, has made remarkable progress establishing a community house in Kandos. On land donated by the Mid Western Regional Council and levelled by Tracey Boxall, CGB Services, Stage one was a concrete slab sponsored by Kepco and poured by Kutchas and Lance Boxall.
With a State Premiers Grant arranged by Paul Toole MLA, Stage two involving the frame structure was erected by builder Jason Boxall, who has also finished the roof, Stage three and windows, Stage 4. Maureen Philips has announced the AGM ON December 13, 11 Dabee Road, Kandos 10.30am, to be followed by a Christmas Party.
Rev Michael Sutton presented a fascinating talk on Japanese culture to the Rylstone Kandos Rotary Club. Michael spent ten years in Japan as an academic lecturing in international trade and was intrigued with the culture of the area. Festivals play a big part in the religious lives of the Japanese and Michael had many photographs of the intricate workmanship used to build floats for processions.
“The Japanese are very aware of the change in the four seasons,” Michaels said. “This is quite different to Australia where ours seasons tend to blend more,” he said.
Michael had a “lucky door prize” with small Japanese gifts which is also a very Japanese feature of hospitality. David Roach thanked Michael for his presentation and he may well return to share of his experiences with the club. Michael will be ordained as a priest in the Anglican Cathedral Bathurst on December 2 and we wish him well in his new career.
