Thankfully Friday, 22nd March turned out to be dry and overcast; perfect conditions for the mass planting session of our hebes. 

We are deeply indebted to Mr and Mrs Vaughan for the generoud donation of compost to give the plants the best of starts; grandparents Keith Coles and Ian Mannion, Mrs Fallon and Mrs Cruse for their help with the planting; parents for lending their support to the launch of eco-schools; what a massive transformation!

Grateful thanks are also extended to Beckworth Emporium for their generous donation of summer flowering bulbs which we shall be planting in class groups over the next few days. 

We all look forward to nurturing and enjoying our plants for months to come.

"It really looks lovely - what a lovely idea. Thank you for organising"

Back in 2014 and before the building expansion programme started we began exploring the possibility of becoming an eco-school. 

It all starts in the classroom

Eco-Schools is a growing phenomenon, which encourages young people to engage in their environment by allowing them the opportunity to actively protect it. It starts in the classroom, it expands to the school and eventually fosters change in the community at large. Through this programme, young people experience a sense of achievement at being able to have a say in the environmental management policies of the school, ultimately steering them towards certification and the prestige which comes with being awarded a Green Flag. The Eco-Schools programme is an ideal way for schools to embark on a meaningful path towards improving the environment in both the school and the local community, while at the same time having a life-long positive impact on the lives of our young people, their families, school staff and local authorities. More information can be found on the following link about Eco-Schools.

On Friday, 22nd March 2019 we shall be launching Eco-Schools with the Big School Clean-Up and a 'Love My Hebe' planting event. The idea is to involve the children, staff and governors to bring along a Hebe plant (any variety) for planting on the bank adjacent to the top pedestrain bank during the day. The children will be encourage to tend their plant, watching it grow and flourish alongside themselves and a lasting legacy as they move onto the next stage of their school career. 

Sincere thanks to two of our parents, Mr and Mrs Vaughan, of Hydroponics, Wellingborough, for their generous donation of compost for planting and wooden plant stakes for the children to be able to write their name to identify their plant and Bosworth Garden Centre for the offer of 10% discount. Tandee Nursery, Barnwell have also committed to 10% discount.
