Green-fingered families support School Council’s allotment project

Elmhurst School for Boys

5th May 2016 | Early Years

Pupils, family members and staff from Elmhurst School recently took part in a Community Gardening Morning, to create on-site allotments on the school grounds.

Organised by pupil members of the School Council, the event saw supporters of all ages picking up trowels, spades and watering cans to help make the dream of growing their own food at school, a reality.

The new allotments will be enjoyed by pupils of all ages from the Nursery up to Year 6, and will allow the children to learn about growing and maintaining plants, as well as gaining an understanding of how fruits and vegetables are grown and sourced. 

Charles South, Headmaster, said: “We would like to thank all of the pupils, parents and family members who took part in our Community Gardening Morning. Working together on projects such as this really helps the boys to develop a sense of responsibility and appreciation for the world around them. We are delighted with the results of the morning and the boys are very much looking forward to watching their plants grow, as well as tasting the fruits of their labours.”
