Gardening day in the Secret Garden
Over the summer holidays our school janitor, Mr Campbell has been kept busy! One task tackled was to upcycle wooden pallets into storage shelters for new and existing outdoor learning equipment in the Secret Garden. As most of you are aware, with supporting funds from our PSA, our staff team plan to extend and grow the outdoor learning programme across the school which will benefit all our children.
The Secret Garden is a fantastic space and resource with some well established features. It is however too big for our enthusiastic young gardeners to maintain on their own, so we NEED your help!
With a few plans underway, first on the list is to invite you all to come and join our SECRET GARDEN MAINTENANCE DAY on SUNDAY 8th OCTOBER 2017 and give the weeds some welly!
The wet summer has produced a lot of growth, there is bindweed to battle, bramble and willow to tame, raised beds to weed and repair and redundant materials to clear in a prime area that lends itself to a sheltered learning space.
Please put this date in your diary and bring along a few hand tools if you can. If you can’t manage the whole day then come along for a while, even for a couple of hours as definitely a case of the more the merrier - experienced or not!
We'll put on refreshments and snacks to keep everyone going so come along and help to give this lovely space a big push in the right direction. Get in touch so we know how many biscuits to bake!
