Jacana Primary School
Shows The Way!

Jacana P.S. students being very creative using recycled paper!


Year 3-4 teacher Emma Farnsworth from Jacana P.S. is part of the SFSF Professional Development course.

I have visited Jacana P.S. a couple of times now and have been bowled over by the enthusiasm of Emma and her class to make a positive difference to their school and the local community.

The class is starting up a Jacana Care Club and (with support from parents) Emma and the class are establishing a great garden as part of their environment class.

SFSF is following Emma's class and their efforts on our web site. They are a great group and deserve all the support and recognition they can get. Which leads us to a requestů

Emma and the school would love to put a water tank next to the vegie garden.

There is a great shed next to the site which would ensure plenty of water. We can easily see how the water tank would be a great way of integrating maths and saving water into their program.

And of course the water it would supply to the garden would be a neat way of showing how water can be effectively recycled.

So is there anyone out there with a spare $1500 or a creative way of raising the cash?

Sponsors would be well recognised and much appreciated.

Drop us a line via E-mail, phone the office on (03) 9579 7224
or use our
Get Involved form if you have any ideas.
