Wildlife Whispers

Winter might be upon us but the Nature Garden is alive with the swish of rudd and roach in the pond, the chickens laying eggs still and Mr Clark building our giant gazebo. Beans planted in September are beginning to grow and the Nature Garden prefects will be weeding that area this week with a selected work force of the wellie booted . The Nursery children visit regularly to look for eggs and learn about nature with their brand new overalls equipped for all weathers. They hit the puddles big time last week!

Last month the senior prefects planted over a hundred trees and shrubs around the school boundary and also constructed a new avenue in the nature garden itself. Twenty bird boxes were installed around the grounds too which hopefully will soon be adopted by our feathered friends once they have been weathered and don’t smell of us awful human beings!

It is an absolute delight to see children enjoying themselves out in the open and appreciating a different type of educational experience.
