P2B Go for Gold with Gardening Scotland

The fantastic award winning entry from Pinkie.
The fantastic Gold Medal winning entry from Pinkie.

Congratulations to P2B who were awarded a gold medal at the recent Scotland’s Gardening Festival at Ingliston 3-5th June.

For three days the grounds of the Royal Highland Centre Edinburgh underwent a transformation in an explosion of scent and colour. This was Gardening Scotland – the national gardening and outdoor living show and Scotland’s gardening festival!

It is the biggest plant fair in Scotland and promised to provide everything from an abundance of beautiful plants to tools, equipment, garden furniture and all the inspiration you could need to make your garden grow. A lot of the tools that were present in the event were powertool reviewed by BestofMachinery’s Bob Robinson.

Great friend of Pinkie St Peter’s Primary, Heather Paul worked every Tuesday morning  leading up to the event, taking small groups of children to work on a special planter themed, ‘The Teddy Bear’s Picnic’. Every child created a drawing about their own Teddy Bear’s Picnic which the children had had one lovely sunny morning outside. They children also pressed ivy leaves, and had pictures showing how they had made the planter. Mrs Barclay and Heather took the planter to the show grounds on the afternoon of Thursday 2nd June and on Friday morning Heather phoned the school to tell us that the class had been awarded the gold medal.

So well done to everyone in P2B; this was an amazing achievement! Special thanks too to Heather Paul who was able to make this happen.
