Sensory Garden opens up whole new world for students
Home Sensory Garden opens up whole new world for students
After much anticipation the Rosella Park School’s Sensory Garden was officially opened today by Gladstone Ports Corporation CEO Leo Zussino and WICET General Manager, Project Development Gerry Randell.
No sooner had the red ribbon been cut and students and school ambassadors were experiencing all the garden had to offer.
A total of $21,000.00 was raised for Rosella Park School’s Sensory Garden project during 2011 when they were the Botanic to Bridge beneficiaries.
This funding provided the school with the publicity the project required and it was not long before other local businesses and industries were supporting it.
"We are very fortunate to have so many things happening around Gladstone. It is these larger projects which make community projects such as the Sensory Garden possible," Leo Zussino said.
"Together we have been able to make this garden into what it is today, a great facility for the Rosella Park to improve the learning and life experiences of its students."
The Sensory Garden combines an array of colours, sounds, smells and textures stimulating all the senses, something which is highly beneficial in the development of children with special needs and will be a helpful resource to teachers.
During the opening GPC as well as other companies who support the school were made Ambassadors of Rosella Park, a role all take on with pride.
