Southampton in Bloom Winners!!!
We are very proud to have won two awards this year in the Southampton in Bloom competition. One for Garden for Learning and the second School Wildlife Garden. The Mayor attended the school on Tuesday to present a group of children with the awards.
This may appear at first glance to be perhaps an incidental or small matter but actually this represents a really important endorsement of our environmental program of learning led by the indomitable Steve Bowles... responsible for the pond dipping, newt catching, den building, camp fire marshmallow and banana roasting, mini -beast hunting, bird call and tree identifying along with our Friday Wellie Boot and Tough Mudder sessions.
Our Environmental Learning is not viewed as a nice extra in our school. It is a core part of what we do in terms of providing our children with the widest possible learning experience and we are fully committed to maintaining this aspect of our educational provision and we only wish we could do more!
