Nursery Day with Mac Bay School
Wednesday 26th May, 2010Question: What happens when you take a very enthusiastic volunteer, a group of year 5 and 6 students from the local school, and a lot of paint?
Answer: An unbelievable transformation of buildings at the YEPT Nursery.
On Wednesday 19 May volunteer Paula West, organized a group of students from Room 1 at Macandrew Bay Primary School (the closest school to the Nursery) to paint murals on our rather dull concrete block tea room, glasshouse and potting shed. This included images of a coastal wonderland of penguins, seals, plants, and birds. It was a great day and everyone had a wonderful time. All you have to do is look at the photos as they speak volumes!
After everyone had finished painting they each potted up a Cabbage tree to take home. We hope to visit the school in the near future to talk about the Trust, yellow-eyed penguins, and native plants.
Many thanks to the volunteers, trustees, staff and "big" students that helped along the way....Alison, Andy, Bernadette, Cathy, Christine, Jack, Jim, John, Leith, Max, Paula, Peter, Prue, Robin, Sue, and Zac.
And thank you to the 31 students at Macandrew Bay Primary Room 1 for making our Nursery a beautiful place to work!
