Food and The Environment

Nursey

The nursery have just started clearing a site adjacent to the nursery and plan to grow some vegetables ready for eating before the summer holidays.

Junior School

The Junior school have also benefitted from a bumper crop from our fruit orchard with all 600 children receiving either a plum, an apple or a pear.

Senior School Pupils

Senior school pupils have also used the fruit orchard as a learning tool; in Geography S4 students were able to study the process of market gardening and sample some of the soft fruits.

The Food Health and Consumer Studies department were very inventive with all the produce as you can see from the table and there are plans to lengthen the season even further next session.

S6 pupils also entered the Ecoschools One Planet picnic through their interest course Our planet and had great fun sampling all the produce from the orchard as they decided on the best jams and chutneys to make for their picnic.
