BELMAY Primary School students got hands on with herbs and vegetables as they built their new garden beds earlier this month.

The pre-primary students have been investigating seedlings and how they grow.

Teachers got in touch with their local Bunnings in Belmont, and the company donated five raised garden beds, soil and seedlings.

The Bunnings staff worked closely with the students, teachers and education assistants to construct the raised beds, and advised on how to prepare the soil and take care of the plants as they grow.

Teachers Nesh Oldman and Ula Harrison said hands-on experiences such as this mean a great deal to the young students, with community support providing learning opportunities the students might not otherwise get to experience.
