Baker's Square

One of the places in our >neighbourhood that is important to the Kerry Street community is Bakerís Square. Our school doesnít have a very big grass area for playing vigorous ball games or running fast so Bakerís Square, being just a short walk away, is a great place for us to go. Friday lunch times are our regular visits, where we play on the playground, sit under trees and eat lunch or play soccer or football. In 2005 we did physical education there with Bec and Lisa from the YMCA. We also mapped the park and spent time on works of art.

Alex, Jimmy, Stephen, Pasgen and Wara reporting:
