As part of our animal care course, year 11 students have an opportunity to design and put together a vivarium for some of our school reptiles: a bearded dragon, a crested gecko and a leopard gecko.
In preparation for this, one of our year 10 animal care students volunteered to help re-pot some plants that may be used in the vivariums. This was done in her lunch break and was lovely and supportive to the year 11s who will do this task as part of their coursework.
With patience and care not to damage the plants, she removed them from the older, smaller pots, added new soil to the larger ones then gently pressed them in, giving them a feed to help them establish. This way, the plants will last longer in the viviariums without having to re-pot them.
We are very excited to see the next steps when our plants are used, look out for part two!
