Lower School Family Gardens Dedicated

The Lower School Family Gardens were dedicated yesterday afternoon and as part of the celebration students picked pumpkins and carrots from the garden and decorated the pumpkins.

The students have been enjoying the gardens for many months.  A special thank you to the Barberian/Rodeck family for their generous donation that made the building of the gardens possible.

Watch the video below to see Lower School Headmaster, Mr. Milligan talk about what the garden means to the students and to see our little gardeners in action.

Grade One Gardeners

There’s snow on the ground, but that isn’t stopping the Grade One’s from preparing their garden for the Spring. The Grade One’s in the Ridley College Lower School planted tomatoes and flower seeds in their classroom today.

The Lower School gardens are a new initiative at the school. The gardens create a more green environment around the school and also serve as an educational tool to help students learn about gardening and plants. As an added bonus, the garden yields some delicious vegetables!!
