Some fantastic news to begin with – Junior Landcare sessions will be resuming in Week 1 of Term 3 – Thursday 16th July 2020
Our first session will see the wonderful Elli Webb (Waste Education Coordinator | Cleanaway & Gympie Regional Council) come and teach us all about recycling and waste! We then have a special project planned that will require the children to use this knowledge of waste and recycling.
Junior Landcare Nature Art Day
I have also recently organised a Nature Art Day for our Junior Landcarers to catch up, which will be held on Thursday 2nd July 2020 at a lovely property at Kybong called Keefton Place.
We plan on having a lot of fun, with Sandra Ross from the Gympie Regional Gallery coming along to teach the children how to make an artist book using leaf art, before having a sausage sizzle lunch. YUM!
The afternoon will see us doing some nature-themed rock painting. We will then hide these rocks around town, along places such as the River to Rail Trail, for people in the community to find and share with us. Jayne has also kindly given permission for us to paint some of the rocks that make up the property’s labyrinth maze as our own special way of saying thank you for for having us!
I will soon be creating our Special Home Garden Newsletter, so parents please make sure that you get any progress updates to me so that I can include these in the newsletter.
In the meantime I hope that your children have been enjoying the Online Learning Page that we created. I am currently working on trying to update some of the content and trying to find some new material that I can upload.
I also hope you all enjoyed the Activity Booklets that we posted out to the children – I received a couple of photos of some very happy kids!
I look forward to seeing all of your wonderful children very soon – they have also showed some amazing resilience and initiative through these times, by continuing to be Junior Landcare Superheroes in their own backyards! It really is lovely to see and they should all be extremely proud of their efforts.
