Over the past few weeks Mrs Knight’s Year 8 class have been working together to plan new a garden by reusing plants from outside their classroom. They have been researching the amount of sun their new garden receives, suitable plants and landscaping designs. This week they tested their garden designs and prototypes then voted on the most effective design. Currently they creating designs for a planter that symbolises the history of Orewa. A plan has also been organised amongst the students for garden maintenance. This Design Process has been integrated into and is a practical example of students integrating Manaaki Orewa.
