Green Team

The PTA are also linking in with some parents and carers that have created an ‘informal adult green team’. We will working with Mr Hooper on trying to upgrade the forest school and peace garden and provide more green screening and planters around the school. We will also be applying to the woodland trust to help facilitate this.

Later in the school year, we will be looking for volunteers to put on the wellies and bring out the spades and muscles for digging and planting.
