Gerry Archer Athletic Centre is located on the corner of Leach Highway and Abernethy Road, Cloverdale.
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.
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.
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.
Museum of Water is a radically different museum that showcases, in Australia’s driest state, our connection to the world’s most essential life source. For over a year UK artist Amy Sharrocks and WA custodians have been towing a rusty trailer, collecting watery donations and the memories that go with them.
The whole collection is at Fremantle Arts Centre. You can wander through a WA landscape where you can see more than 500 bottles of water, each with its own remarkable story. There are samples from a Dragon Tree Soak, grey water from a laundry, a splash from a Paralympian’s swimming pool.
The Museum of Water exhibition launches tonight at Fremantle Arts Centre. Included in this beautiful exhibition are the three bound volumes of students’ work that make up Watermarks. We are very pleased to be able to share this incredible book with you which features stories and drawings from students here at St Emilie’s.
