Make a Space!

At last the months of planning, discussions and design presentations have progressed to hands on hard work. 

Things got started on Tuesday with a fun trip to Bunnings.  Once we had purchased all the supplies we began the water blasting.  This has made a huge difference to our decks and fences, and everyone loved having a go at this very satisfying task. 

The gardens were also cleared, pavers brought in and the undercoat has started to be applied. 

It has been fantastic to see the engagement and enthusiasm in all the children. They are working so well as a team and the final result will give them a huge sense of pride in their outdoor learning areas.
