This year 400 plants that are indigenous to the Monash area were planted behind the portables in order to extend the wildlife corridor between the school and the Council easement. They will provide food and shelter for our native wildlife. When established the area will also double as an outdoor learning space for scientific learning, such as studying life cycles, mini beasts, nature and wildlife. The Senior Environment team ran the day and everyone got out into nature and had great fun! A special thank you to Sensei and Mr Rooks for helping Ms Leary run the day and to Max D B for also organizing the planting groups. A big thanks to Izzy and Holly, our Environment Captains, for running the day. They explained to every class what had to be done and kept everything running smoothly. I would also like to thank the Senior Environment Team for collecting classes and helping to plant the plants. Everyone had a great day and Mother Nature thanks you. This has also raised our Biodiversity levels for our 5 Star accreditation. The winners of the Tree Day Colouring Competition will be announced at the last assembly this term. They will win some great prizes and a special event to do with planting a special tree will happen.
