Rock Gardens

Last week Nyamal, Miniya, Tevi, Joyice and Fiona D were collecting rocks they found around the school.

Miss Cervenjak told us that when she was a little girl she made a little rock garden, using an old tile and covered it with dirt and rocks.

That got us thinking, why don’t we make our own rock garden and keep it in the garden for kids to play with during snack and lunch.

So on Friday, Nyamal ran a Student Choice Workshop in which Zakeem, Shigufa, Alex, Bree and Nyamal all helped to get the rock gardens going.

 

At first, Zakeem wasn’t to sure about the idea of “getting dirty” but within no time he had rolled up his sleves and his garden was coming to life. 

Alex even added a worm to his garden. “My worm lives in his house”.

Miniya’s Knitting Workshop

Miniya returned to school in Term 3 eager to share with her peers a new skill she learnt over the School Holidays. She displayed her capabilities to explain and demonstrate the process and patiently helped teach a small group of peers and even Miss Cervenjak how to finger knit. Miss Cervenjak then extended the learning experience by teaching students a similar form of knitting known as ‘French Knitting’. The Grade 1 students have now joined the senior knitting group during Lunch time to help knit items for homeless people around local Dandenong.

Alex shows off his French knitting and excitedly says, “I did this all today!”

We are knitting our fingers” says Ali

What a fun, relaxing skill! Thanks to Miniya for sharing her passion with us!
