Community Investment Program - April 2019
Skipton Primary School - Sustainability program
Skipton Primary School’s sustainability program saw the Grade 5/6 students continuing to collect important data about flora and fauna on The Common, for the Ballarat Environment Network.
Grade 3/4 have been working hard, planting more indigenous flora, at the platypus viewing platform. The students removed weed species from the area and identified and tagged indigenous plants along the creek, in readiness for clean up work by Skipton Landcare.
Grades Prep-2 have been learning about endangered animals. The children were visited by citizen scientist Eleanor Lang, who shared stories of her lifelong love, of Eastern Long Neck Turtles.
Grade Prep/1 are rehearsing a talent show which will be presented to students and families. They are hoping to raise lots of money for The Melbourne Zoos Eastern Barred Bandicoot Conservation Program.
