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.
