COMMUNITY

St Francis College is showing up with Spirit! Community Spirit. As Covid 19 restrictions are levelling down, the St Francis College students are starting to venture back out into their local community.

Our Grade 7 pupils visited Talhado School in Sea Vista. They spent time in class with the 3 to 5 year olds and assisted teachers and staff in daily chores. Past pupils were welcomed back with loud exclamations on how they have grown and matured in the last 7 years!

OUR SCHOOL PAIRED UP WITH ST FRANCIS ANIMAL RESCUE FOR OUR THOUGHTFUL THURSDAY OUTREACH PROGRAMME THIS TERM.

Each week dog and cat food was collected and donated to this wonderful cause.

Sue Rae Fox and her team also visited the school with dogs, puppies and kittens to educate the pupils on how to look after pets and what their goals and aims in Sea Vista were.

Our Grade 6 and 7 pupils will have the opportunity to visit the outreach programme next month were they will volunteer and help out with the duties.

OUR GARDENING CLUB VISITED ANNIE AT HER INSPIRATIONAL VEGETABLE GARDEN AT THE RECYCLING CENTRE.

She started from scratch with the help of generous donations from the local community. Annie sells her produce via the Green Box to locals and visitors alike. The aim was help Annie to weed, clear and plant new beds with locally sourced, seasonal plants. At the

end of the two afternoon’s hard work, numerous rocket, chilli, basil, brinjal, chive and thyme plants found a new home. The pupils learned much gardening wisdom from Annie and the Garden Club will definitely be back to help in this very worthwhile initiative.
