We have developed a new ‘wellbeing garden’ on the school field, with the help of the Abbey Gardening Department. The school kindly received a donation from a local family, which has enabled the school to embark on this project. The school’s Mental Health Ambassadors came up with an action plan for what they would like to see in the garden and one of their ideas was to create a quiet place, where people can go and sit, rather than running around on the field. The garden has also been designed as a sensory garden, so there is always lots to see, hear, feel, smell (and even taste some of the herbs or fruit in our school meals, once it has grown). The garden was officially opened with a blessing led by Father Francis, our Chair of Governors. The garden has also been entered into a Britain in Bloom competition so was visited by RHS judges recently.
