Outdoor Classroom LVPS

Mid-year 2016

Welcome to the Outdoor Classroom

This year in outdoor classroom, we'll have exciting news about our school and environment.

Eco Team

The Eco team started up straight away in February. We have 115 members who meet on Wednesdays at 3 different meeting times.
So far the team have taken responsibility for:

· Emptying class room recycling bins

· Helping kinder with their compost bins

· Introducing measures to help classes save on paper usage

· Establishing energy monitors who will reduce electricity waste in class rooms

· Doing some work in the garden


· Bottling and selling worm tea

· Designing and making their Eco team badges

Worm Tea

Our school is selling worm tea for just $2 for 2 litres. It is available Friday afternoons in our school garden from 2:30-3:00.

Kinder and Preps visit Botanical Gardens

Highlights:

  • Elias liked going in the Japanese gardens, the water sculptures and playing in the leaves.

  • Ashlee liked playing in the leaves but not in the house.

  • Isabell also liked playing in the leaves but not on the muddy grass.

  • Eli liked writing on clipboards.

The children learnt about autumn leaves, why they fall down and change colour to yellow and orange.
