Year 3 Soup Day

Found in: News

On Wednesday 18 May, the Year 3 class had the opportunity to make soup from scratch. The students planted leeks in the St James’ Veggie garden at the start of Term One and monitored them from seedling to maturity.

Students harvested 42 leeks in the morning and with the guidance of Mr Crane and some fantastic parent helpers, produced some delicious soup by the early afternoon. This activity raised over one hundred dollars for a school worm farm project and, more importantly, developed financial maths, understanding of fractions and social skills.

Many thanks go to the wonderful parent helpers assisting with the preparation and cleanup of the ‘soupy’ aftermath we could not have done it without you.

This is the first of many ‘garden to table’ initiatives for the students at St James’ and we always appreciate the help from the parent body.
