Dear parents/guardians 

 

At the beginning of this school year, we were kindly given an area at RystonSports and Social Club for our students to create a small garden. As spring has started, it is the perfect time to start planting. Our Green Prefects and TY students will be participating in this activity. This garden will allow students to create a link with the community they live and attend school in. 

 

We are asking parents/guardians to sponsor if possible and/or to donate flowers, shrubs, seeds and any gardening tools such as shovels, spades, hand trowels, buckets, gloves, rakes and wheelbarrows etc. Any donations will be greatly appreciated as we depend on this to grow a beautiful garden for the school and wider community. Donations can be brought to the school preferably by the 27th of March as the students are eager to get gardening!
