Tacoma's Green Team
Our school community values the environment and works to encourage and promote sustainability together.
The Green Team consists of students and teachers who meet every Monday, Wednesday and Friday at lunchtimes to work together in the gardens. We plant seasonal vegetable and herb seeds and house them in the green houses. The students enjoy planting seedlings in the garden beds and taking care of them with mulching, fertilising and watering them.
The students harvest the fresh produce each week with smiling faces and excitable chatter. The harvested produce is sold to parents and visitors each Friday afternoon.
We acknowledge the students each week at the Friday assembly for their efforts with the "Leafy Leader Award". These awards have been designed by students who depicted sustainability and its importance.
