Students in our Year 5/6 Living Room Caretakers Group meet every Tuesday morning at 8.30am to 9.30am.  During this time, they learn about the Living Room and it's connection to the outside environment.  This special group engages peer teaching from the year 6 students who are in their second year in this group, to the year 5 students who are just beginning their journey.  The Living Room was a huge environmental project, so the past students wrote a manual that explains the history, environmental features, their maintenance and a caretakers schedule which they present to the Board of Trustees.  Each week, they revisit part of this manual, so that they are informed when showing other classes or visitors around this diverse area.  Last week they learnt about the beehive and helped package the honey.  Previous to that, they discovered the planning that was involved during 2005-2009.  This year, they found out about the passive energy the Living Room uses to save resources. These student are wonderful environmental leaders.
