Community Garden

The St. Francis de Sales garden is a place where people from the community can gather together and meet new people.

The garden commenced in 2013 and is a work in progress. During the year students are involved in the continuing development and maintenance of our school community garden. The students are given the opportunity to work in the garden during Student Wellbeing lessons, as part of a senior action team, as well as volunteer their time during lunchtime.
