Village primary school kicks of gardening project
A village primary school enjoyed the sunshine this week with trowels, soil and flowers in a new garden project.
Barrow CEVC Primary School in Colethorpe Lane had a full day of gardening for the whole school on Monday.
Helen Ashe, headteacher, said: “It was super, really lovely. All the children were involved at some point.”
Bronwyn Keating, who has had three children attend the school, organised the event and helped secure funds from county councillor Karen Soons who donated money from her locality budget.
The plants, pots and compost were provided from Chedburgh Plant Centre who have supported the scheme.
The plant pots have been placed outside of the front of the school and already children have been involved in watering and tending to the new additions.
Mrs Ashe added: “Mrs Keating has shown the school great support over the years, it was great to see her back helping us again. The children loved it. One Year 3 pupil, Isaac Rist, is a great supporter of the gardening club, when Bronwyn was with us, he was delighted to see her again.”
The project fits well with the schools value this term, which is caring for creation.
