From lit­tle things big things grow

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - OPINION -

BELMAY Pri­mary School stu­dents got hands on with herbs and veg­eta­bles as they built their new gar­den beds ear­lier this month.

The pre-pri­mary stu­dents have been in­ves­ti­gat­ing seedlings and how they grow.

Teach­ers got in touch with their lo­cal Bunnings in Bel­mont and the com­pany do­nated five raised gar­den beds, soil and seedlings.

The Bunnings staff worked closely with the stu­dents, teach­ers and ed­u­ca­tion as­sis­tants to con­struct the raised beds, and ad­vised on how to pre­pare the soil and take care of the plants as they grow.

Teach­ers Nesh Old­man and Ula Har­ri­son said hands-on ex­pe­ri­ences such as this meant a great deal to the young stu­dents, with com­mu­nity sup­port pro­vid­ing learn­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties the stu­dents might not oth­er­wise get to ex­pe­ri­ence.
