National Tree Day

Students and teachers planted 120 indigenous trees and shrubs for National Tree Day on Friday July 24. For many students this was their first experience planting trees. We are proud of our school grounds and every year our tree-planting has contributed to beautifying the campus. Trees also provide environmental benefits, amenity for the school and local community, and a habitat for native birds, animals and insects. Our sponsors provided a delicious free BBQ for the school community to celebrate our efforts.  

2013 Botanic Gardens tomato sauce-making competition

Adelaide Secondary School of English students were awarded a special merit prize in the Secondary Schools entry category of the 2013 Botanic Gardens tomato sauce-making competition. The students produced a special tomato ketchup sauce that was, according the judges, a “modern, multicultural interpretation of tomato sauce” and deserving of a special prize. Several students and staff attended the award ceremony at the Botanic Gardens on 24 February to receive the prize. This is the second year that ASSOE has won this prize for the tomato sauces made from tomatoes, onions and garlic grown by the students themselves in the school horticulture program. Well done to everyone involved!
