Teams and coaches have been confirmed for term 4 but we may need to split the Yr 1/2/3 team into two teams as there is 14 players and we will need another coach for the other team. If your child is down to play in this team and does not want to play, please let Mrs Brien know asap so we can sort the teams out.
REPS - a reminder about touch rugby reps this Sunday at 3.00 pm at Centennial Park. Age groups are U12, U14 and U16.
Touch Teams – Term 4 2020
The past few months have been a very busy time for the Enviroschools team as we head into spring.
The team has visited Weston and Totara Schools in order to get some ideas of what their Enviroschools are doing and to make connections in the community. The children came away with many ideas and with a great deal of enthusiasm for future projects for St Joseph’s School.
The gardens have been fully weeded thanks to the Year 8’s. New compost has been added to them. We also had a new garden bed built. The team has planted lavender, rosemary, chives and garlic. They have sown carrot seeds and will be sowing bean seeds. The potatoes are being prepared. New word learnt: “chit” as in “chit the potatoes”.
Mrs. Frances-Rees has also applied for and received funding for our gardens. The Enviroteam surveyed the students in the school and collected ideas of dreams and wishes for our gardens. They then created a dream board after collating all the dreams and wishes, They also incorporated ideas from Weston and Totara School. In the weeks ahead they will be purchasing native plants and planting them to make native bird and bee friendly areas of our school.
