The junior and senior infants released their butterflies last week. The 5 Painted Ladies had grown from caterpillars into butterflies in Mrs Murphy’s classroom.
1st & 2nd class have spent the last few weeks watching the seeds they planted grow into plants. Today, to kick off Biodiversity Week, they planted one plant into each of the raised beds in the school garden with the hope that each class will have a pumpkin of their own next October in time for Halloween.
Any visitors to the HDA carpark will be able to watch them grow over the next few months.
Herbertstown NS marked Earth Day in different ways as seen in these photos.
The Infants took part in a scavenger hunt, made art with nature and did some planting in the garden.
1st & 2nd Class planted some pumpkin and sunflower seeds.
3rd & 4th class explored the school grounds and signed an ‘Earth Day’ Pledge.
