Aims of the project
The aim of the project is to volunteer our services to the local community to both benefit the community and teach our children about nature and the environment.
Background and goals
The Pares Woodland Garden was created a couple of years ago and we have been in contact with the HRA to offer our support for the project.
The bulb planting and litter pick involved two staff from St. Andrew's and children from Year 8. The visit by the nursery involved staff and parent helpers and all the children from nursery.
The bulb planting and litter pick benefits the whole community, whilst the visit from our nursery children helped to give them an awareness of our local environment. We are hoping to continue helping again this year.
All pupils from Year 8 at St. Andrew's took part this year and all the children from Nursery. We understand that working parties are also formed by other schools and community groups.
Frequency and duration
