Sophie Cotsis, Member for Canterbury, visited McCallum’s Hill Public School to view the stage one completion of the school’s new sensory garden.
The garden was supported by Federal MP Tony Burke and State MP Sophie Cotsis, as well as the Lantern Club in Roselands.
“The school’s leadership and P&C committee shared a vision to convert an unused space and convert it into a spectacular interactive open space which has now been incorporated into school teaching and learning” said Ms Cotsis.
“This is a fantastic addition to the amazing school and will be enjoyed by kids today and into the future.”
“The sensory garden will especially help those students with greater needs and will encourage a more stimulating classroom environment.”
“Thank you to the school’s principal Mrs Georgia Constanti, and P&C President Paul Robertson for their continued dedication to student education and well-being.”
Debbie Waicokacola, General Manager of the Lantern Club, announced the club would donate a further $10,000 to invest into stage 2 of the garden’s development.
