This morning the Devereux brothers and and the Backus children met with Mrs Cogger to work in St Emilie’s Community Veggie Garden. Today we had some seed potatoes to plant. These were left over from our donation of seed potatoes from WA Potatoes Seed Potatoes for Schools project. We had been waiting for these last few potatoes to start ‘chitting’. Mrs Devereux also brought along a few of her Royal Blue potatoes that were ready to be planted.
First of all we had to weed the garden bed.
Here we are ‘armed and ready’ with our garden tools.
Then we had to dig a hole to plant our potato.
It was so cold this morning that we were all breathing out ‘steam’. So Mrs Cogger took a photo of us all being little ‘puffing billies’. Can you see the steam?
We are still looking to fill the veggie garden roster with volunteers so if you would like to meet on Friday 17th August at 8am, then please let Mrs Cogger know. Mrs Cogger would like to thank the Devereux and Backus families for volunteering this morning.
National Science Week is from 11-19 August and there are several events being held throughout the metropolitan area and many of them are free.
If you would like to find out more, click this link and you will find the WA events finder for National Science Week. Some of these events would make a great day out for a family of Science loving individuals!
Mrs Cogger encourages all families with a keen passion for Science to attend this wonderful community event. Our students are submitting entries to the ‘logo’ competition and hopefully some of our drawings and designs will be on display the expo.
This morning two of our St Emilie’s families met with Mrs Cogger to work in the veggie garden. The tasks were to pick and bag rocket and to pick, wash and bag radish. BTW Mrs Thuijs loves our radish!! Unfortunately she missed out on a bag this week as we sold out!
If you would like to volunteer for the veggie garden roster then please send Mrs Cogger an email as she is still looking for helpers to fill the roster. Her email is
We meet on the Friday mornings when there is an assembly. We work from 8-8:30am in the veggie garden and then take our produce to the hall to sell at the assembly.
Mrs Cogger would like to thank the Devereux boys Patrick and Merrick and Solomon Bonney for working so hard this morning.
A weekend of workshops, hands-on activities & author talks
A weekend chock-full of workshops, hands-on activities and author talks that you might like to take the whole family to! Young scribblers can find their inner poet, contribute to a collective cartography, and celebrate the special women in their lives at the Mother’s Day Market. Looks interesting!
