Guardian Angels is fortunate to have an area of land that has been cultivated into an amazing school based garden. The idea began when our school first became involved with the Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden program. Since then, and due to the commitment and dedication of wonderful volunteers, the garden has grown in size and productivity. From Prep to Year 5, all students enjoy access to the garden and lessons guided by the Design Technologies area of the Australian Curriculum. In Year 6, students access the garden in line with kitchen lessons under the direction of their teacher.
Keen and interested students often visit during breaks to assist with the maintenance of the garden and were recently involved in creating a display entry for the Gold Coast Show 2016. Proudly they were awarded first place!
GA Handwriting Competition:
This is an annual event held in Term 2. First, second and third places are awarded for the top examples in student handwriting in each year level. The competition is advertised widely and all classes take part. Awards are given out during Friday assembly.
The Mick Beard Public Speaking Awards are held annually in Term 4. Finalists from Years 1-6 present their speeches and are judged by a panel headed up by past staff member Mr Mick Beard, whom the award is named after. The competition details are advertised widely and parents are welcome to attend. First, second and third prizes are awarded on the day of the speeches, with one child winning the overall trophy for the most impressive speech of the week.
All students are invited to participate in the Runners Club each Friday morning at 7.30am. All students can partake in training, whether for a specific event like Athletics & Cross Country or just wanting to improve general fitness.
