Visit from Emma and Little Ed

Yesterday we were privileged to have a visit from Emma and little Edward. He is the cutest little baby and so good. He is growing steadily and each time I see him I can see a difference in him. It was lovely to catch up with Emma. She had come in to see the beehive delivered to the school as she and Miss Perry have put a lot of hard work into getting it.

Camp walks!

In preparation for Hanmer Camp we will be taking our students for walks to prepare for their activities on camp. Please make sure they are wearing suitable footwear. There will be a definite walk each Thursday at 1.30 p.m. and possibly another during the week depending on the weather and what’s on.  If you would like to walk on any of the Thursdays you would be most welcome. Just please email us beforehand.

Bokashi Buckets

We are going to trial Bokashi buckets in Navigators 3. It is a way of composting but it doesn't stink so we will keep it in the classroom. If it's successful we will use it all around the school. We got given some Bokashi mix and buckets. Here is a video explaining what they are.

An Update on Edward

Edward now weighs 3.1kg. His immune system is not as strong as other newborn babies so Ms Risk will wait a little while before she brings him in to visit us at school. Our syndicate team visited him last week and he is absolutely beautiful as the photos below show.
