Hail to the Caretaker...The Caretaker Man
Looking at other blogs on this site we have noticed many schools have a fantastic caretaker helping them out in one way or another. Without these wonderful folk we probably wouldn't be in this competition.
OUR Caretaker's name is Denny and he is amazing with the children. We are also very lucky to have him as he is as keen about sustainability as we are and he is always happy to share his knowledge with others. Denny looks after our chickens and has taken on the role of Head Bee Keeper very keenly - he has even set up a hive at home! Denny built our gardens and works with the children in the gardens on a daily basis, teaching them how to plant, where to plant and how to water the plants (a VERY important skill!)
We are very lucky to have Denny at Opua School and I am sure other schools have great caretakers!!
