Canberra Montessori School students
are making a difference in their
community by taking their first steps
into the world of hospitality.
The Grove Cafe, a student-run
enterprise nestled in the school
gardens, donates all of its money to
Co-ordinator Jackie Kirk said the
cafe offered real-life learning .
She said it gave each student a taste
of running a small business.
Children are responsible for
managing stock and budgets,
designing and creating the cafe
furniture, uniforms, menus and logos.
Ms Kirk said what began as
discussion in 2012 has become a hot-
spot for the school community.
"It really has been about letting the
children take charge and follow their
interests," she said.
Heather Gellatly, 10, often works at
the cash register but said it was a steep
learning curve initially.
"It was a bit strange at first but once
you get used to handling it and
knowing the costs it s easier," she said.

coffees and hot chocolates are the most
Hartley Lifecare fund-raising
manager Helen Falla said her

purchase an iPad for a 13-year-old girl
"She is in high school and she is

so they can hopefully offer more
variety and fund-raise even more.
USING PLASTIC BAGS
An ACT government recycling
campaign is aiming to reduce the
amount of bagged household
recycling. The Recycling -- don t bag
it! campaign is targeting recycling
tied in plastic bags, which can t be
processed at the Material Recycling
Facility and goes to landfill instead.
About 200 bags of recycling go
down the conveyor belt every hour at
the facility. The campaign is aiming
to educate the community to change
their recycling habits and stop using
plastic bags for recycling.

for fire hazards
Householders have been urged to
clear their homes of potential hazards
ahead of the start of the bushfire
ActewAGL crews have prepared
the electricity network for the
warmer months and want residents to
ensure electrical and gas equipment
is not at risk of fire.
As well as inspecting powerlines
from the ground, we also use
helicopter patrols to inspect overhead
powerlines, a spokesman said.
Residents should check whether
their trees are near powerlines, report
any vegetation near electrical
infrastructure at parks and reserves
that could pose a fire danger and be
mindful of severe weather warnings.

Rural Fire Service website at
