Our fantastic Parents Association (PALMS – Parents At Lawford Mead) have started a brilliant garden project on the school site, transforming the area by the old pond. One of our dads, Steve, is leading this exciting new endeavour. He came to see Year 2 this week to explain the project’s possibilities and get the children’s ideas for what to grow and how to develop the area further. Year 2 then planted the sunflowers that had been germinating in their classrooms this half term! Steve has even repurposed old wood from the site to build some beautiful benches and added our school logo to them. They look amazing next to one of our signature willow trees, which is growing in the centre of the garden. Thank you Steve and thank you PALMS! The children are so excited about getting involved and gardening together!
