PHOTO: SUPPLIED Putting fruit back on the menu The students at Rai Valley Area School have been busy doing their bit to put healthy fruit rather than fattening, processed snacks on the lunchmenuby planting a fruit orchard. Students at the school were challenged to focus on an issue affecting their community and find an environmentally sustainable solution as part of their year 12 and 13 environmental science class. They decided a fruit orchard on the school grounds would be a great first step to providing a ready supply of fresh fruit as a healthy alternative to snack foods. They got stuck right in and, with the help of their teacher Siobhan Skinner, set about planning their orchard and a day of planting. They also got help from the Havelock Menz Shed and Bunnings Warehouse,who provided 16 trees and also gave them some planting advice, which went a long way to helping the students’ success. The orchard included a plethora of fruit, ranging from grapes and feijoas to plums, nectarines, pears, apples and peaches. The planting of the trees was a community event and included members of the Menz Shed, The Havelock Lions, parents and friends of the school as well as students from both the junior and senior schools. Siobhan says the students did the community proud and she gave them full credit for coming up with idea. The class is part of the Enviroschools programme, a nationwide initiative that looks to put a greater focus on sustainability. Marlborough boasts the highest buy-in for any region in the country with 82 per cent of schools part of the programme. Siobhan says their project is just the ‘‘tip of a sustainable iceberg’’ and she cannot wait to see what the students come up with next year.
