Gardening pupils get a little help

Pupils at Peasedown St John Primary School are hoping their gardening efforts will blossom.

Members of the school’s Greenfingers group have been giving a helping hand by Hillier’s Garden Centre in their efforts to grow herbs in each classroom which they hope will eventually be used in school meals.

They were given plant pots, herbs and potting compost to get the project under way.

The group is one of several throughout the school looking at ways they can improve school life.

Teacher Jennie Rainsford said they were drawn from across the whole age range.

She said: “The pupils are going to grow herbs in each classroom and will be responsible for planting and looking after them. We will be linking up with another group where children are learning cooking skills and hopefully some of our herbs will be used in school meals.”
