Our second live video chat with Surabaya

Our Autumn Veggies are starting to Grow

We found that lots of rain doesn't necessarily help vegetables to grow. What is more important is plenty of sunshine.

We are now getting more sunshine and so we just need to keep the soil moist through watering. By mulching with sugar cane mulch we can help keep the soil warm and retain moisture.

Here are a couple of pictures to show the growth over the last couple of weeks:

Welcome to a new year at MACC. I am looking forward to the opportunity of working with 5S, seeing new goals set, new goals achieved and both individuals and the class becoming better than before.

A new year, new room, new students . . . a new beginning.

Also new this year is the other class in our shared space is 6T being taught by Mrs Todd. An additional Yr5 class with Mr Brownlee completes Stage 3 at MACC in 2017. We look forward to an exciting year ahead. I hope our students enjoy the program, the challenges and the opportunities to develop relationships.
