National Tree Day 2016
Findon Environmental Leaders
On National Tree Day we took on the role of teacher during the second session (before morning tea). The Environmental Leaders taught the foundation students about native grasses and how they are great habitat for macro-invertebrates, which improves Biodiversity.
We played a game called Pull-Apart-A-Poa and Potting-Up-A-Poa, where students explored the bugs coming out of a grass tussock and then learnt how to pot up their own grass. We also get some of the Findon Forest weeded, by play another game called the longest root, where students compared the roots of the weeds they had removed.
During lunch we also planted out an area near the science room so that it looked more natural and would grow lovely indigenous shrubs and grasses.
