The beginning of Autumn signalled the time for our Mammoth Pumpkin Harvest! The tamariki were excited to see how big our pumpkins had grown over the summer months.
This is the second year taking part in Turua School’s Garden to Table Giant Pumpkin competition. Entering our biggest for weigh in, we clocked in at 64kg, nearly double the weight of last years pumpkin. But still under the winner that weighed in at 139kg!!!
Our tamariki then decided to plan, design and decorate our second biggest pumpkin into a racing car for the decorated section of the competition, and it was a huge hit with everyone wanting a turn to climb in and try it out.
