Planting and gardening.

Classes have been busy planting around the school and in our new raised beds. So far a number of different types of flowers and plants were planted along with onions,potatoes,peas and beans in the raised bed. Our composting areas is also nearly complete and we have started a wildflower section to attract bees. We are also going to construct a bug hotel so we can investigate mini beasts.

New hen run.

We decided to upgrade the hen house recently to give the hens more room to walk around. Thanks to Billy and the workers in the school for their hard work. Our hens seem to be extremely happy and haven’t stopped laying eggs since they arrived. They are very well minded by the senior girls who come down everyday to check for eggs and to feed and give them water.
