Gardening Club Many thanks to the parents and children who have been working quietly on improving the school garden. We’d like to formalise this to a regular Tuesday afternoon session. Parents and children are welcome to join us, weather permitting, every Tuesday from 14.30 to 17.00. If your child is interested in participating but you aren’t able to attend at that time, please speak with Matt to arrange their participation. You’re welcome to drop in for whatever time you can give and don’t have to commit to the full time period. Our next tasks are to assemble the com poster, finish preparing the herb garden and preparing the raised beds in the courtyard. Please join us on Tuesday!
