Pizza Oven and Planter Boxes


As part of the City of Yarra sustainability grant, students from Hands on Learning helped to design and build a pizza oven and planter boxes near the canteen and outdoor seating area at the back of the school.  The planter boxes include fruit trees and herbs and are designed to be self-watering.

Students enjoyed the experience:

“Mixing concrete was fun”

“Brick laying was so fun, I love brick laying”

“It was a really good experience”

“I enjoyed helping make the planter boxes – we worked well as a good team”
