Monkwood Primary school is delighted to announce that we have been awarded a Local School Nature Grant, thanks to players of the People’s Postcode Lottery.
Our pupils will be benefiting from a range of gardening equipment which will be used to grow our own vegetables and flowers. In addition, staff will receive training to help children learn outdoors. Pupils played an important role in applying for the grant and selected equipment that they felt would benefit their peers.
The project is run by Learning through Landscapes and is funded by players of the People’s Postcode Lottery. Lesley Bonnington (co-ordinator of the project) said ”We are thrilled to have been successful in our bid and cannot wait to start to improve our outdoor learning further in the new year. Well done to our fabulous Monkwood children!”
