Nature garden for Capel primary

A community effort at the Capel pre-primary busy bee has resulted in a brand new nature playground for the budding students.

18 families and P&C members worked hard to build a sensory walk, digging in garden edging, creating a dry creek bed with a bridge, planting natives, forming log steppers, planting bushtucker plants and securing poles to paint.

The bike track also got some much needed tender love and care by adding a garden arch with creepers and making a tyre edge with stones and plants and securing a wooden tent.

Pre-primary teacher Amy Lamera said she couldn’t be more thankful to the local businesses who donated the materials to the project.

"Nature play areas promote open ended inquiry learning and play that supports the development child, through sparking respect for the environment," said Ms Lamera.

“The support from the school admin, P&C and the families as well as the local business donations has shown outstanding community spirit.”
