River Rangers Horticulture Programme
The Year 5 and 6 River Rangers have started to learn a bit about horticulture. Students are making Everlasting Daisy 'Seed Bombs' to plant in their gardens by mixing clay, compost and seeds together and rolling them into balls.
They research conditions needed for seed germination and after care and learn the importance of using scientific names. Students then design a plant label for their 'bombs'. Also, students help to care for the school vegetable garden by weeding, fertilizing, planting seedlings and sowing seeds.
They even get to taste the produce!
Bush Ranger Cadet Program
What a great time the Cadets are having this term with the continued development of their skills and knowledge during our Archery WA training sessions. Archery WA Instructor and Co-ordinator, Justine Johnson has been extremely pleased with the results of our students, commenting positively on the level of skill demonstrated by our cadets. A class archery tournament will take place at the end of the term with small prizes awarded. Overall assessment of their development will be the focus. We are grateful for the level of professionalism and experience that Archery WA demonstrates and which ultimately, greatly benefits the students.
Finally, I would like to extend an invitation to all of the bushrangers to be a part of the College's Mountain Bike Building Trail day, this Saturday 19 March. The day will begin at 9:00am and finish at 11:00am, with students helping to build the very trails they will be using in Term Two when they go Mountain Bike riding as part of the Bush Ranger program. A free sausage sizzle will end the day, rewarding the students for their investment in the building of this great community. Remember to bring shovels and rakes and a bike so you can try out the track. Looking forward to seeing you all there.
