Community Garden
This year Oxford School Garden Group have decided to offer the use of four raised beds to individual families within the school. There is no cost associated with use of the garden beds, but of course you will have to provide your own plants and fertiliser. However, we would expect you to work with us in supporting the garden as a whole, helping to water and maintain all the beds over the summer.
Volunteers work in the garden every Tuesday evening beginning in June and a couple of Saturdays where we have work parties to clean up the school yard and trim trees.
If you are interested in gardening with us this summer then please email me at jaas56@hotmail.com, and tell us briefly why you would like to grow vegetables in raised beds. If there are more than 4 families who are interested, your interest and reasons for gardening will help us to decide who to select.

Imhotep FLL Lego League:

We want to congratulate our FIRST LEGO League (FLL) “Legos ‘R Us” Robotics team for their favorable showing at this year’s FLL Championships.

The team submitted a synopsis detailing their ingenious animal deterrent system (which addresses a real-life problem on Sable Island, with the wild horses becoming habituated to buildings). The FIRST Project Innovation Committee judges have reviewed their synopsis and selected the “Legos ‘R Us” team as one of the 20 finalists to attend the Seventh Annual Global Innovation Award event in Washington DC, USA from June 18 – 20, 2017. The students have been given an opportunity to present their solution to the judges and stand a chance of winning a cash prize of USD $20,000 and associate with peers and mentors to help implement their innovative idea. The two (2) runners-up will each receive a cash prize of USD $5,000. All participants of the top three teams will receive a new LEGO MINDSTORMS EV3 robot set. If selected as one of the top 3, the teams must agree to use the prize money to further develop their invention and/or to support team activities related to FIRST programs.

Our Legos R Us team is one of three teams selected from Canada to compete for the top 3 Global Innovative Awards in Washington D.C. This is a huge success story not only for our program, but for the Province, the Atlantic Region and Canada to be selected as a top 20 finalist worldwide.
