KMCC was pleased to host twenty, Year 8 students from Kennedy Baptist College on Thursday 8th September. The event was an opportunity for the students to participate in a community service, and to learn more about the youth focused activities at the Centre.
Led by teacher Scott Britza, the students completed a native garden project at the front of the Centre.
The students quickly set to work turning the soil, and adding soil improver, and then arranging the native plants in an attractive display. They also created a whimsical, stepping stone path through the garden bed – which we are certain will delight our kindy visitors. During the busy morning, the dedicated students also raked leaves, and swept paths around the centre perimeter.
Scott was delighted with his students, explaining that the activity had nurtured conversations about areas on their school campus that would benefit from a garden revamp. “They’ve been inspired to look at service opportunities within their own school community.”
We are really proud of their efforts, and are looking forward to the students returning in November for another exciting project.
