St Brigid’s school is fortunate to have a large green area attached to the school. This area has been landscaped and we now have large allotment beds and a polytunnel where the children can plant their own vegetables and flowers.
We also have animals! Pigs, Goats, Bees, Guinea Pigs, Poultry have all been resident in the garden. The children are taught how to look after and handle hens without ‘flapping’ and we collect the eggs each day which are bartered for items or work needed in the garden. This had been a huge success .
A wildlife area with a pond has been provided and we have already had an influx of new fauna, the favourite of which are the tadpoles!
Parents and children are encouraged to come and work in the garden at weekends under the guidance of Caroline Jolley and the garden team. Volunteers are always welcome.
