Mr Rob Stokes - And the Winner is ...
The grant winner was officially announced at the school today where students were presented with certificates by the NSW Minister for Education Rob Stokes.
"The school's ‘community warriors group’ demonstrated a passion for not only the opportunity to build their own edible garden, but also a superior understanding of environmental issues", said Mr Rob Stokes.
As the winning school, the students will receive:
- Materials and support to design and build an edible garden, including a waste management system.
- An eight-week education program
- An information program for teachers and parents
"The program has been designed to incorporate literacy, science, numeracy, creativity, health and connections to nature," continued Mr Sullivan. "The students will learn how to grow local, seasonal and organic food, generate healthy environmental ecosystems and promote local biodiversity. Students will also learn about creating compost and the life of bees. At the end they will get to enjoy the produce they created", said Dominic Sullivan.
