Melville Intermediate - Kee's Tours the School Garden

Towards the end of the last school year we had a number of visitors in the classroom for the day, one of whom was Kees. Kees worked with Bradley from Room Eight and produced this video about the school garden. Each classroom at Melville Intermediate has their own space in the school garden, and gets to run the garden, take care of it and harvest the produce at the end of their time. Filmed in December 2010. We'll see you all in three weeks when school in New Zealand starts again!
