Walker Students’ Newsletter Term 3 Week 10

Spring Has Sprung!

Welcome to the final instalment of the Walker Newsletter for Term 3. We have been enjoying the changes to the environment that Spring has brought with it including longer days, warmer weather, sunshine and the smell of flowers. Spring was the focus of our assembly last week, during which we explored the positive impact of outdoor activities such as gardening on our wellbeing. This is our last week of school before the holidays. Term 3 concludes this Friday 22 September and recommences for Term 4 on Monday 9 October. We wish you all a safe and enjoyable holiday break.

Artmaking for Storyweavers

The Walker team have busily been creating art works for Storyweavers. Featured above is a sneak peek of some of the beautiful work that the students have been making here in Walker. We didn’t want to give away too much in order preserve the surprise!

Preparing for Planting

Walker staff and students have been busily painting some recycled car tyres donated by one of our lovely staff members. The next step will be to fill the tyres with soil ready for planting with summer seedlings. The tyres will hopefully bring a splash of colour to our courtyard!

A Positive Milestone of Evolution of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts Influence on the Environment

Girl Guides & Girl Scouts have made influential stepping stones towards creating a better future for the environment and for socio-economic purposes, trying to provide a stance of equality and diversity by not only trying to make their mark on what had been destroyed and trying to make the most of what is still left.

As in reference to the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts and Girl Guides Australia NSW, they believe that environmental sustainability is an integral form of justice and should be well- respected as following guidelines of Bush Regeneration, or Reservations etc. They are trying to reinforce the downside of the environment being treated as being unimportant, purely because selfishness and inconsideration of the natural aspects of life that evolved over the decades, centuries and the millennium. This is displayed through trying to Cut to the Chase and be aware of the current issues that our world is facing during this current age. Their intentions is to lead towards a better future for all beings great and small.

Therefore Girl Guides and Girl Scouts have evidently displayed great importance and reinforcement, to provide a better perception aimed at the community, and for trying to strive for the voice in this world, for this to really make a milestone and make their mark in influential society.
