Pre-School welcomes Subpod
BY ALEX TIGANI
Singleton Heights’ Skallywags Pre-School community has welcomed a new addition to its site.
A modern subpod garden bed has made its way to the garden thanks to a Singleton Council initiative with the Solo Resource Recovery who entered the Get Grubby Program.
Solo Resource Recovery’s Leanne Sanderson, Organics Education Officer, proved instrumental in adding this to the centre’s garden.
“The worms will come out of this section and you can go through 10kg of scraps per week which will turn into worm food,” she explained to excited pre-schoolers including Carly Corrigan and Rueben King.
Skallywags Pre-School Centre Director Chloe Baker admits her staff are also excited to add some more sustainability into their site.
“We do garden and everything but this is just next level,” she revealed.
“We have implemented the Subpod into our outdoor environment and already the children have begun learning about the benefits of compost and sustainability practices.
“The educators have already established intentional teaching experiences throughout the indoor and outdoor learning programs.
“We are so happy to have won this amazing prize from the Singleton Council and the Solo Resource Recovery by entering the Get Grubby program.”
