Thistle Only Take a Moment of Your Time...
Four of the Academy’s imaginative teachers have created an initiative which is astounding! With your help this simple idea can become something remarkable.
They will repair the raised flower beds and develop a vibrant garden which will be beneficial to many students throughout their subject areas. They are hoping to produce organic fruit and vegetables which could be used in students’ food technology classes.
The raised flower beds have been severely neglected and therefore are impractical. Many weeds are present and they are critically overgrown. The teachers and students hope to improve the conditions as well as create a whole new garden for the students to be involved with.
This new and improved garden will include flowers as well as a vast range of fruit and vegetables. Furthermore, this could potentially benefit many subjects such as: Biology, Maths, Construction and Art. This will provide students with a comforting place where they can learn more about vegetation and plant life.
The teachers are also hoping that this project will bring together a gardening club, forming a strong community and a pleasant environment which will engage the students in nature and how food is grown.
The Academy has kindly requested that you support them with this and donate any of the following items that are unwanted or you have spare to support them in achieving this goal.
