Spring progress!


We're delighted to update you with progress made in our school garden this Spring. 

Thanks to all who donated to our project, we were able to employ a team of brilliant landscapers to come and turn our vision of a school garden into a reality over the Easter holidays.  We now have the bones of a really solid garden in place, and - while it's looking a little bare at the moment - in time this will be an oasis of greenery, scents and sounds.  The children are absolutely loving the new space and are enthusiastically watering at every opportunity!

We will continue to update you as we go along, and do follow us on social media if you would like @mawnanschoolnature (Facebook and Instagram).

Thank you so much for supporting this wonderful project.
