Mr Crane’s Year 2 class has been very busy this term with a special fundraising project. The students picked olives from the trees near the school oval, washed them and put them into brine. They then picked bay leaves and rosemary from around the school grounds to add flavor. The olives have been fermenting for a month and are now finally ready to eat!
Students set up a stall to sell their jars of tasty olives outside the Early Learning Centre and raised nearly $150. With the money raised they purchased over 2200 biodegradable bamboo forks for the Canteen to support sustainability at St James’. A brilliant effort!
