Today we will finish the floor with weed mat and pumice. Thank you to Chris Long for his kind donation of a square metre of pumice :-) Today we will also begin our planting programme.
Here is the video of Part 2 of our build...
Woodhill Senior Whānau students continued the journey towards becoming a self-sustaining Enviro School as they began to build a kit-set Greenhouse last Friday. Students approached the build as a problem -solving project. Three groups lead by William Roland, Te Warana Ratima and Matire Ratima and supervised by Mrs C, Mr C and Fiona Roland each put together different parts of the Greenhouse. As they worked, Senior Whānau students used skills such as interpreting instructions, problem-solving and cooperating as a team.
Soon, students will begin to raise and sell seedlings in the Greenhouse, practicing authentic budgeting and business management skills. They have already started designing advertising for this project in sustainability.
A huge thank you to Mr C and Fiona Roland for donating their valuable time to help and to Bayer Primary School Science Award for their funding. Watch this space for Part 2 of the Greenhouse build.
