There are lots of signs of new life in the QPA garden! Mrs Moore and Mrs Robertson are hard at work with their teams growing both flowers and vegetables. Edible produce will be making its way to the kitchen for Mrs Powell to use during cookery classes, once ready. The new shed is also now being used every day – our thanks go to our wonderful PTA for their financial support to enable its purchase.
Members of the gardening club went to the local cemetery to support with the improvement of one of the gardens of remembrance this lunchtime. Well done to the children for their hard work and thank you to Mrs Moore for organising the opportunity with Bournemouth council. The children were superb throughout and represented our academy incredibly well.
The QPA allotment is bearing fruit – literally! We have tomatoes, potatoes and rhubarb being taken to the kitchen. Many thanks to all of the children in gardening club who have worked so hard, as well as to Mrs Hayward and her apprentices, Mrs Moore and Mrs Robertson.
Mrs Hayward and her many helpers have now finished planting the onions into their beds. We hope to have enough onions for Mrs Powell’s cookery lessons next term.
