Silverton Primary School Frog Pond Project

Over the past seven years our school community have planted hundreds of indigenous and native plants around our school grounds and have taken part in community plantings at Tirhatuan Park Wetlands. We have a very active environment club that meets twice a week to maintain and improve our school grounds. Environment Captains work with teachers and students to maintain our comprehensive recycling composting and indigenous revegetation programs.

Students are learning to become Water Watch data collectors and collect data from the pond. In 2007 students assisted by teachers, parents and staff members researched, designed and built a frog pond. The pond provides the whole school community with an accessible aquatic habitat for science based studies of ecosystems. It has also greatly enhanced the aesthetic appeal of our school grounds and brings much pride and enjoyment to our whole school community.
