God's Gardeners


Miss Schofield has been very busy getting together a group of keen and enthusiastic children to join our 'God's Gardeners' after-school club. This is all part of our school's pledge to 'Care for our Common Home' and learn about and look after God's world. The children will be involved in many different activities, many of which will be seasonal. Below is a timetable of things to look forward to including a visit and talk from a local bee-keeper, clay green-man making, a wormery, making bird-boxes, planting sun-flowers, painting plant pots and growing and tidying the eco-garden.


Alongside the visitors involved, we also hope to confirm soon the parishioners who will also become 'God's Gardeners.'
