As part of our Eco Schools this plan, we have been looking at caring for our green space around us. Here at Kirkcolm, we are truly blessed with amazing grounds but with that comes great responsibility! Our gardens and bushes can have a tendency to really ‘shoot up’ when we aren’t looking so we have had to call in reinforcements in the form of Mrs Richardson who is a keen and knowledgeable gardener equipped to help us tackle the playground!
Mrs Richardson will be stopping by on Wednesday afternoons to assist the boys and girls with the tidy up and already they have made a great big dent in some of the overgrown bushes and planters! We dug up our daffodils to plant elsewhere, we found leeks and spring onions growing that we have passed onto Anne Marie and we have started a big ole compost heap! (that’s still missing a cover so if anybody has any old carpet cut offs or an old rug can you please let us know!)
A big thank you to Mrs Scott, a Leswalt mummy, who also joined the boys and girls on Wednesday afternoon to lend a much needed hand!
Hope the start of some very stunning playing areas through all the hard work of the boys and girl!
Here are some photos of the boys and girls hard at work in the sun…
