Costa Georgiadis visits Holy Family

On Wednesday 28 October, Holy Family Primary School, Merewether, hosted an ‘Enviro Day’ for approximately 30 Newcastle University preservice teachers.

Costa Georgiadis from ABCs “Gardening Australia” joined us for the occasion. What a truly passionate and inspirational man! From the outset, he captured our attention and provided children and adults with amusing anecdotes about growing your own produce and caring for our environment. Costa was so generous with his time, visiting the classes and connecting with the teachers and children. He was very impressed with Holy Family and may visit us again, perhaps with a film crew!

Thank you to Jenny Robinson and Fran Davey who did an outstanding job organising and co-ordinating the myriad of activities on offer for the preservice teachers. Thank you also to the teachers who enabled the enviro classroom lessons and the presenters in the hall who shared their expertise! The Enviro Fair was a great success, with everyone from grandparents to children gaining something positive from the day’s presentations and activities.
