For more information see the article on the School’s website here.


Welcome to Gary the Gardener

November 8, 2016


Welcome to our new gardener. Gary started work two weeks ago and those of you who walk the paths will already have noticed the difference. Gary will be leading our Volunteer Work Days, and we may even be allowed to have a bit of a bonfire. If you spot Gary, do stop for a chat, he’d welcome everyone’s opinions on how things are going on.

Thank you to everyone who came to our Hallowe’en event … around 100 children showing off their amazing costumes and working their way through various games and craft activities. It all ended rather beautifully with a procession walking round the Gardens following Teignbridge Ranger Sian and her bat equipment listening for bats! Thank you too to Artstorm, Shaldon Wildlife Trust and Coffee-to-Go.
We also raised £22.05 in the collection bucket.
