Congratulations to the 2013-2014 School of Roots Officers
Herring Gut Learning Center's resident student-run business, School of Roots, held elections before Winter Break to determine who would be the business's officers for the remainder of the school year. Each student wrote, edited, and gave a speech explaining why they should be elected to their desired position. Will, a second-year student, was voted in as SOR President with a nearly unanimous vote. Fish Room Manager was the most competitive position, with three students giving speeches and hoping to win that position. Carl, a second-year student, was voted in by his peers after explaining how much he loves to work with the fish and how dedicated he would be to that position. Assistant Fish Manager, Alex, explained his positive work ethic by describing a time when he was given the task of picking up all the small biobeads on the floor of the fish hatchery. "I finished the job, even though I really didn't want to do it. I did it anyway because it was my job." Read more...

Marine Investigations with the St. George School
Herring Gut recently completed a 6 class collaboration with Mrs. Falla's second grade class at the St. George School investigating marine plants, animals, and their adaptations to their environment. This program was generously funded by the Georges River Education Foundation (GREF).

Mrs. Falla has been thrilled with the results of the program and her students' engagement in activities. In previous years to hit standards relating to the difference between plants and animals and their environments, she was using a school-provided terrarium kit with centipedes, pill bugs, and plants. She said half of the time everything would arrive dead and she was required to kill the animals when she was done because legally she wasn't allowed to release them. She was so happy that she didn't have to use that kit anymore and instead could hit the same education standards using an environment more familiar and interesting to the students of St. George and teach them about what is in their backyards.
