Congratulations to the students in the Year 5/6 Sustainable Elective from Term 2, 2013. Their Community Table has been, and continues to be a great success. After months of planning, designing and thinking, they have developed a successful way for our school and families to share our excess fruit and vegetables. Our table is out in the Cultural Garden area every Thursday morning at 8.30am. The students have a roster for set up and standing by the table to talk to people as they come and donate, or take foods. We put food on it that is extra in our school gardens. We have contributed a lot of lemons and also spinach plants we have grown at school. Our community have added to this table too, donating limes, oranges, apples, herbs and mandarins. Any one can select what they would like to use at home or eat at school. We get many comments from our community about what a great idea this is. Showing Aroha this way gives us a great feeling and parents and grandparents who visit keep telling us how great this project is. Our motto is 'You can give to us and we can give to others. It's for a sustainable cause'.
