Get Growing Day is a great success

A huge thank you to all the parents, children, staff and the PTA who attended Get Growing Day on Saturday 21st April. Everyone worked really hard on many different tasks to help enhance our beautiful school grounds and the PTA provided most welcome refreshments and lunch.

We had a great day and were exceedingly lucky with the weather (it didn't rain till home time!). Work was done on the pond area, ready for Year 4's Environmental topic; the area behind the library was cleared as a shady relaxation area; the terrace and greenhouse area by the studio were tidied and readied for new planting by the Environmental Club; general weeding, new compost and planting were done in the long black grow beds at the front of the school and the pots and hexagonal memorial flower beds outside the main entrance were enhanced with new compost and new plants.  In all, a very successful day.
