The program startedin June at primary schools atBeulah, Jeparit, Dimboola,Warracknabeal, Donald andYaapeet.

Mrs Clark said the first session was about getting to know pulses.

“It was thefirst of four sessions in thePulsing into Pulsesprogram forschools in the Wimmera,” she said.

”At the start of the first session, it’sbeen a farmer’s child who has been able to share with the otherchildren what pulses are.

“The children made aplant model and identified where pulse seeds fit in it and into a plantlife cycle.”

Mrs Clark said the students put their hands into tubs of pulses to feel them.

“From this, themost common adjectives to describe pulses werehard, small,roundand cold,” she said.

“This is asimple activity that farmingparents could also share with their children at home.”

Students also looked at pulses under a microscope.

“Thesession ended with a faba bean story,written by students from Rainbow Primary School for a 2013 competition,” she said.

“From the start of sessions, when hardly anyone knew the names of pulses, it has been great to see the student getting to know them and name them.

“I thinkeveryone saw or felt something surprising in this session.

“I look forward to sharingmore about growing them in July in the second session.”

Wimmera and Mallee catchment management authorities funded the sessions.
