Last year a boy scarecrow stood watch over the garden.  This year we have a fashionista with lots of sparkles and jangles.  Hopefully she scares away the crows and doesn’t attract them!  Any ideas for names?


The apple tree from Lyra has blossoms! Now you have to remind me…is it a Candelabra Apple Tree or a Chandelier Apple Tree?

Who Has Seen the Wind?
Who Has Seen the Wind?
By Christina Rossetti 1830–1894 Christina Rossetti
Who has seen the wind?
Neither I nor you:
But when the leaves hang trembling,
The wind is passing through.

Who has seen the wind?
Neither you nor I:
But when the trees bow down their heads,
The wind is passing by.

The parents have done some fundraising to buy picnic tables for the Garibaldi Garden.  Many of you looked at the catalogue with the pictures of the metal tables that are covered with plastic.  Most of the students really liked the colour red for the tables. 

Another thought is to get cement tables like the ones on the other side of the school.  They have lasted a long time and they have flat surfaces so we can write, paint, and do crafts on them easily.

What do YOU think?

We care about each other
