Welcome Back!

Welcome back to another year of all things Green! Whilst you have all been enjoying a well earned rest we have managed to achieve a few things.

The vegetable bed has thrived with a little help from our helpful janitor Alan (BIG THANK YOU ALAN!). Although our rocket and spinach has gone to seed, our potatoes are ginormous (they taste amazing too), our beans have gone bonkers and our tomatoes are looking tremendous. We are  hoping to harvest  the potatoes this week and are hopeful for beans (if Mrs Hilsley has left us any!) and tomatoes in time for our One Planet Picnic in September. More information  on this exciting event will follow shortly.

I also signed us up for the Royal Horticultural Societies Campaign for School Gardening just before the end of last term and over the holidays we have been awarded both Level 1 and Level 2 awards! If you would like more details see the RHS schools page. It’s a great project and one I am very keen for us to be involved in and I am hoping we can achieve more awards  before the year is out.

As you know in June 2012 we gained our first green flag 🙂  This year we will be reassessed to see if we can  hold on to our flag so lets make this year an extra green one!

I’m looking forward to meeting my new  team and will post details once I have them.

Mrs Thomas
