Gardening Club exploits!
This week gardening club were excited to plant some new trees on the path to the nursery, which are particularly welcome given that we have sadly lost a couple recently in the storms as well as two trees bordering the steps down to the field which were identified as being diseased during the Summer term.
These new trees were generously given to the school free of charge from the Woodland Trust as part of the Queen's Jubilee Green Canopy project which is donating trees to people all over the country. We received 15 native British saplings of 3 varieties - Rowan, Hazel and Crabtree. They came complete with protective tubing and poles for support as they grow. The children worked really well together, measuring out the plots, digging the holes and planting the trees. We look forward to seeing them grow!

I would like to pass on my thanks to the amazing Mrs McInnes—who organises and facilitates our Forest School provision (in addition to our Gardening Club) here at St Mary’s as well all of the fantastic pupils who make up our Gardening Club.
