Singleton Public School (SPS) welcomed school parents, students, elders and volunteers from Singleton Shire Landcare Network to help plant out the school’s new Indigenous Outdoor Learning Area.
Singleton Public School’s Julie Sullivan, Local Landcare Coordinator, Adam Dwyer and parents and Landcare volunteers planted the school’s Bush Tucker Garden.
The garden has been a joint project between school’s Aboriginal Culture Group, local elders, Hunter LLS and Singleton Landcare.
SPS’s Aboriginal Education Coordinator Julie Sullivan said the garden was a living resource providing students with first-hand experience of local native plants and would provide stimulus for developing knowledge about traditional Aboriginal life.
“The students were excited to have the plants in the ground and will soon be learning all about them,” Ms Sullivan said.
