Students from Tambar Springs Public School and Gunnedah Public School had much to do when they came back to school.
Tambar Springs students have been studying the benefits bees bring and have embarked on a quest to increase our native bee population.
Their local insects now have a number of sturdy insect hotels that have been built, complete with wall to wall bamboo for nesting.
They have been positioned above ground with the morning sun and afternoon shade.
With the multitude of flowers blossoms in the school garden, students now hope they will become regular customers.
Oh, and they've also been learning about food nutrition.
Health Nurse Fiona came to give students the wrap on how easy it is to make a wholesome meal in minutes.
For Gunnedah Public School, they had an exciting new installation in their grounds.
They give a big thank you to Bernie Hayne for building their new Trackers Garden sign in honour of Charles Moodie, and to Mr Shorter for installing it.
Charles Moodie's family are happy to see him honoured in this way.
Charles was a tracker for almost 50 years and spent around 22 years of that time in Gunnedah.
Charles left the Police in 1916 after achieving the rank of Sergeant. Charles and his family lived in a hut behind the Police Station, which as been within Gunnedah Public School grounds for many years now.
