‘Something magical happens when you plant a dream with a seed. With plenty of patience, collaboration and hard work, it can blossom into an extraordinary gift.’
Friends from the wider community, including Elder Aunty Carolyn Briggs from the Boon Wurrung Foundation, joined us in celebrating the opening of our ‘Space for playing and learning’. It was a fitting way to finish our term and celebrate the rich learning and collaboration between students, staff, parents and the wider community. Flowing water symbolises a new beginning so to officially open our garden, Amy from Year 6 and Jayde from Year 3, pumped water down our creek bed to symbolise our new use of this space for playing and learning. While this was happening, some of our Preps played their ‘reimagined’ musical instruments in the background. This is by no means the end of our garden project, as our creative, passionate students will continue to add to this playing and learning space.
