Ms Pauline, as you know, was a very special person to the Balmain Public School community. Not only did Ms Pauline support many students with their learning and mindfulness, she advocated for our Indigenous students.
Ms Pauline was also our very own Environmental Warrior, raising an awareness in our school, of the need for recycling, composting and sustainability. Her garden beds grew many a vegetable and herb, being sold back to our community, to continue the sustainability of the garden.
Our compost bins supplied copious amounts of nutritious 'worm wee', which again was quickly snapped up by our community. Of course, it goes without saying, that recycled bottles were used as containers for this project!
Head over to our Instagram account @balmainps for pics of yesterday's 'Going Green for Ms Pauline' mufti fundraising, as well as the for the (drumroll please) amount you so generously donated! You'll find this on the story (coloured circle).
Thank you to everyone who donned their greens, florals and gardening gear to turn each Balmain Public School classroom into a living, thriving garden yesterday...Ms Pauline's legacy lives on through our special garden! We ❤️ you!
