Local artist Paul Baker sails into Carrum

Donna Bauer, Walter and Harriet admire our new shield

Carrum is buzzing over our wonderful new addition to the original Carrum Primary School building.

Paul Baker, our own local artist, has generously spent days creating a masterpiece which can be viewed from the Church Road entrance. The school emblem has been captured as a 3D replica, masterfully sculptured with a concrete render and proudly displayed on the Prep wall for all to see.

The much anticipated garden to be planted as part of our Stephanie Alexander Kitchen garden program has been altered to ensure our shield will remain visible to all who pass by. Featured here is Walter and Harriet with local MP Donna Bauer who was suitably impressed by the skill and effort Mr Baker has dedicated to the shield. On behalf of everyone at Carrum Primary School and the wider community, thank you!

National Tree Planting Day

What an exciting Friday! Today is National Tree Planting Day and a wonderful way to kick start our new Orchard and Wetland Habitat. Prep – 5/6 participated in a hole digging, fertilising (eww!), planting, watering and mulching experience. Many thanks to Mrs Galland for her amazing involvement. Eve in Grade 1/2D learned all about grafting and everyone is keen to be on watering duty during the week.

Bunnies with sunnies!

What’s news this week?

Our poor little snail attacked snow peas just didn’t recover……so we said our goodbyes and then we pulled them out and fed them to the chooks!
The new snow peas are growing strong and hopefully will be growing up the fence by the start of next term.
The broccoli is loving this wet and chilly weather. We planted some baby broccoli today, so we should be able to harvest them over a few consecutive weeks.
The silverbeet, onion, climbing peas, capsicums and lettuce are all thriving and are set to provide us with lots of  healthy food once school returns. Yum!
The bok choy are growing so quick that we can’t leave them until after the holidays…, off to the market this week they go! We should also have some more tasty herb bunches for sale this Friday.
Happy Gardening
