Daniel Pearce working in God’s Garden

Recently, one of Position of Responsibility in Ecology leaders, Daniel Pearce was helping to establish one of the above ground garden beds in the St Francis of Assisi Piazza outside the R/1 Classrooms.

What we have noticed is that although Mr Pearce is a Yr 3 / 4 teacher , the fact that he helped the children plant the vegetables, the children attach a high level of value the plants and consequently care for them more diligently. This process was also assisted by the manner in which Daniel carefully explained to the children the conditions under which a plant would successfully thrive in the soil.
