Green fingers

Lessons come in all forms here at St Benedict’s. An afternoon of practical horticulture left us all with muddy-knees and rosy-cheeks, and has really brightened up our outdoor classroom. Pupils and teachers worked together, weeding, pruning, cutting grass, digging borders, eating chocolate (thank you, Sister!), and filling the brand-new composter to bursting.

The garden is used every day at break time when the weather is fine, and even for the occasional lesson. Everyone’s hard work has paid off. The garden looks positively springlike now, but how long will it last? Only thyme will tell. Good work, everyone!
