The little magical garden created by the school also incorporates elements to help others learn strategies for deaf awareness.

Principal Amanda Walker said: “The students have been very busy creating their garden for real over the spring months and can’t wait for it to appear in the digital showcase.

“The children worked very hard and had a lot of fun creating their own little pocket garden within the school grounds while learning skills in literacy, ICT, expressive arts, science, numeracy, health and wellness.”

The winning pocket gardens are available to view and vote in the digital storefront until June 20.
