Scarecrows in the Vegie Patch

Today our environment Team organised a scarecrow making day. It was a magnificent Spring day in Melbourne. As the sun shone through the budding oak trees, in our school garden, we worked together to create three scarecrows. We used recycled materials. The frame was nailed together and the hammering continued as we attached bottle tops to empty pots, to create the heads. The bodies were dressed in a variety of pre loved clothes. Carefully they were dug into position and are now proudly overlooking the vegie patch.
What a fabulous day of collaborating and helping each other in the garden. For some students it was their first time using a hammer and nails. It was a great learning experience.
We owe a BIG thanks to Ms Scott and The Environment Team for their wonderful organisation and assistance.
