Victorian Schools' Garden Award

Victorian Schools' Garden Award

Northern Metropolitan Region Winners

Yarra Primary School is the proud winner of the NMR Victorian Schools' Garden Awards for 2009.

On October 30th we were visited by the judges who flew in via a $4mil helicopter which landed on the School's basketball court. After introducing themselves and showing off the magnificent helicopter to an enthusiastic crowd of students, teachers, parents and friends, they proceeded to walk around looking at our school and its gardens to determine the State Garden Award winner.

It was a very exciting morning for all that attended the school and for the YPS community.

Awards Ceremony

The whole school attended the awards ceremony on Wednesday December 2nd which was held in the Melbourne Botanical Gardens.

Yarra Primary School was awarded 2 awards: The Northern Metropolitan Region Award and the Catholic Education Office Merit Award. A wonderful achievement for the YPS community.
