The kindergarten students at Bay Robert’s Primary School had a wonderful opportunity to further their learning about plants on May 25th. Kindergarten teacher, Mrs. Norma Jones was successful in obtaining a grant from LSF – “Learning for a Sustainable Future” after submitting a proposal outlining how plants can affect Climate Change and benefit the environment. Each of the four kindergarten classes along with their teacher, had an opportunity to fill the locally made raised garden beds and plant some seeds. The students had a great time learning about the small seeds they planted, and what the seeds would eventually grow. The students planted carrots, cabbage, green onion, lettuce, zucchini, peas, kale, basil and dill. We are hoping to see the results of our efforts over the summer months and harvest when we return to school in the Fall. Many thanks to those who helped along the way in order to make this a successful adventure!
