To view the submission click VSGA awards Fish Creek PS
We have a school garden which provides seasonal fruit, vegetables and herbs to cook with. Each class composts their organic food waste which feeds our worm farm and adds nutrients to our garden. Our garden also features art work produced by our students. We have a passionate team of community volunteers who help maintain our garden, making it a great place to learn in and enjoy.
We are also developing our Learning Stone area. The site provides a living local resource to assist and provide a better cultural understanding and a great place to start for teachers in their delivery of indigenous content. John Murray, our Koorie Engagement Support Officer has been supporting us to develop our site as an indigenous cultural safe space for awareness and community participation.
