Gar­den of ap­pre­ci­a­tion

Wanneroo Times - - School Matters -

THE gar­den at Hawker Park Pri­mary School has re­ceived some ex­tra at­ten­tion.

The War­wick school re­cently re­ceived a Bankwest grant of $400, which teacher Codi Beatty said would en­sure the gar­den was “well fed and wa­tered all year round”.

“We were also able to buy some new plants for the gar­den,” she said.

“The chil­dren love ex­plor­ing it and it’s a great learn­ing re­source too.”

As part of re­ceiv­ing the grant, some of the year 1 and 2 stu­dents took part in film­ing a new television ad­vert, which aired this month.

“The chil­dren’s ef­forts in plant­ing and sus­tain­ing the gar­den shines through in the ad­vert and now it has started to be shown on TV they have a new ap­pre­ci­a­tion for the gar­den,” she said.
