These are our wheelie bins that a two of our talented pupils painted.
We use these bins for our recycling, paper, plastic, cardboard etc... Aren't they pretty?
Our Garden has sprung into life over the two week spring break. We have had huge harvests of silverbeet, cauliflower, lettuce, cabbage, broad beans and we have even had a couple of strawberries
We have discovered self sown sunflowers and an avocado tree is starting to grow which must have come from the compost heap. We will have to find a suitable place to transfer that to!
We have been sharing our harvest with our neighbours, much to their delight!
Parents of one of our pupils own a local restaurant and have offered to pay us for our parsely on a regular basis! Yay!
Here are our latest batch of chickens that the children have reared. Our first batch are now laying and we are going to sell them as layers to local people. We use their poop on the garden as fertilizer and they take care of the scraps.
We have 5 Giant Pumpkin plants romping away ready for Cinderella in March.
We will be posting our last post tomorrow morning as it is the last day of the competition.
We have had a fantastic time during this comp and the children have learned so much, this will be an on-going part of Opua School's culture.
