Prayer Garden

Prayer Garden


We are excited to say that the next stage of work on our Prayer Garden will begin over half term when the hedging to surround the garden is  being planted. Idverde visited this morning to mark the area out before they begin work next week. Once the hedging is in place, two new raised beds are being created so that the children can plant inside them and seating is being erected around the slope in an amphitheatre style.  The theme of the garden is Psalm 23 and it will provide a quiet reflective space for children to spend time during lessons,  break and lunchtimes. Weather permitting, we hope it will be finished before the end of term 6 when Mrs Sessions retires.


We would like to give parents, carers and other family members the   opportunity to contribute to the garden by sponsoring part of  it for a £15.00 donation. The names of all families who support the garden will then be commemorated on a plaque within the garden. Payment can be made on a special payment item on Parentmail or other family members or members of the community who do not have access to parentmail, can make a cash donation in a sealed envelope with their contact details and brought to Mrs Poulter in the school office.
