Kitchen Garden News
Grade 3/4 students are very excited to have kitchen/garden this term. It is great to see their enthusiasm for growing, preparing and best of all eating their home grown food!  After some decent rain during the school holidays, the garden is looking rather lush.  Our winter vegetable seedlings, including broccoli, cauliflower and kale are growing well.  This term we will be planting more winter vegetables, sowing green manure to improve our soil and maybe a favourite….seed bombs! 

Teesdale PS is holding a Working Bee on Sunday 7th May from 9-11 a.m.  All families welcome to come along for a cuppa and a chat while they help with a bit of handiwork around our school grounds.  Hope to see you there!
