Following the successful lottery bid at the start of 2012 pupils have worked tirelessly growing and developing the vegetable garden area. The pupils have enjoyed taking home produce to eat and the Summer term culminated in the school entering the prestigous RHS Tatton Flower Show where they won the secondary schools ‘vegetable trug’ competition. The pupils harvested the remainder of their crops before the winter set in and are planning for next season. They are continuing to work with The Little Learners nursery who visit the school each week to tend their own plots.
The school has also been awarded levels 1 and 2 in the RHS school garden campaigns and is currently working up to level 3.
Autumn saw the installation of a greenhouse.
The garden club takes place every Wednesday lunchtime and after school and in the Spring/Summer months every lunch time.
