Gardening Club plea

 

You may have already heard our brilliant news that the Gardening Club has just been awarded their level one RHS award. The popularity of the club is growing every week, and today we set a new record for the highest number of children joining in with 52 members! This is absolutely heartwarming to see their enthusiasm and commitment and it really is fabulous for so many children to be involved.

 

However, this causes Mr Burge and Miss Somers a little problem... we simply do not have enough equipment to facilitate these many children. So rather than disappoint anyone, we are asking if any of you have any gardening equipment that you no longer want and would like to donate to our club? We are specifically in need of children's gloves, spades, shovels, forks, rakes, watering cans, buckets and dustpans and brushes.

 

If you can help with donating any of the above please email Mr Burge d.burge@mgjs.org

 

Many thanks in anticipation,

 

The MGJS Gardening Club

There are approximately 40 children regularly attending our gardening club, who achieved some great things this year. Their plant sale provided the community with some healthy plants and flowers. They have grown some super fruit and veg which has been utilised in cooking. Many of the pupils who have joined have cultivated a real passion for gardening and have developed some strong science knowledge and environmental awareness through their involvement. Their hard work has been recognised as they have achieved the RHS School Gardening Certificate of Achievement Level 1.
If your child is interested in joining please get them to speak to Mr Burge or Miss Somers
