MEMORIES OF CARISBROOKE
EDIBLE GARDEN PROJECT
This year, the school is working with the Edible Garden Project, letting the kids get outside to explore and learn! They will meet once a month all year to learn more about where food comes from and how it’s grown.
As a pilot project, only four classes have been selected to participate for the 2017/18 school year. We hope to include and grow the number next year.
Check out the Gardening Crew for more information!
INNOVATION FUND - LEGO
CPAC also has an Innovation Fund, for which our librarian, Ms Toms, used some of these funds to build a lego wall in the library. The backing for the wall was purchased through these funds, and lego was donated by families in our Carisbrooke community. Thank you to everyone who donated to make this happen!
The igirl/iguy, Saleema Noon, First Aid, and SafeTeen Programs are funded by CPAC annually to teach our children about personal safety for themselves and others.
This year we have added ikid for K-3 students. iKid is a playful, engaging and interactive empowerment workshop that teaches 5-8 year old kids the practical skills to create a respecful, kind and playful school environment.
