This year St Columba’s School has joined the Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden Program and Pleasurable Food Education Program. In the coming weeks students will be working to transform the circular garden opposite the playground into an edible garden.
Would you like to get involved?
If you have an edible garden at home and would be interested in sharing your knowledge, gardening or cooking expertees, please contact Erica via email: email@example.com
You might like to bring in some seeds from home, lead a gardening or cooking clinic, assist in the planning of an edible garden or the building of future garden beds.
Students will be participating in Clean Up Australia Day this Friday 9th of March at 1.45pm (straight after lunch). Students will be required to bring a pair of reusable gloves, tongs or a bucket for collecting rubbish. Junior students will be focusing on tidying the school grounds, the 3/4 learning community will clean around the block surrounding our school and the 5/6 learning community will walk to Marks Reserve.
Keep an eye out around town for Boomerang Bags! The Boomerang Bag initiative had a Ballarat launch last week and will begin to be distributed throughout the community. Boomerang Bags are handmade by volunteers from recycled fabric and may be offered to customers as an alternative to single use plastic bags. To find out more visit http://boomerangbags.org/
Thank you to the St Columba’s School community for your ongoing support and commitment to nude food. By reducing our wrappers we are cutting down the amount of waste our school sends to landfill and educating students about sustainable choices. Please remember to label the all containers and lunch boxes including lids to ensure they are returned home.
If you have some great nude food recipes to share on our next newsletter, please email them to firstname.lastname@example.org
