On the last day of school in 2014 we have picked some of our lavenders to dry. The Pacific Blue were picked by Macy Gale, Ingrid Withall, Annelise Henderson, Aimee Pascoe, Chelsea Matthews, Sean Lenehan and Casey Bellis. These were the plants that were initially drowned in 2013 and struggled through last summer. They are now well on the road to recovery and produced some lovely dark purple flowers with a strong scent.
As part of their Year 7 Maths unit, students hosted Cameron Smith who described his sheep business as an introduction to the BAA+RAM+YOU maths unit. This new project compares the incomes & expenses of 4 farmers using various breeds of sheep in the fat lamb & wool production enterprises.
