Primary School Grants in 2013-2014 Academic Year

As a new member of the committee, I have taken on the responsibility of Education. A retired primary teacher, I taught in various Bristol primaries but mainly Victoria Park, Bedminster; Gay Elms, Withywood and finally All Hallows Preparatory, Cranmore.

This year, I have loved visiting three of the primaries that had benefited from our grants, and I feel very enthusiastic about facilitating and supporting gardening in schools.

Especially impressive was Paulton Primary School, where a keen Teaching Assistant had worked wonders with the children who had designed a garden in rainbow colours, and gleefully showed off their healthy looking vegetables and little pond.
