Beautiful garden springs to life at Marlborough St Mary’s

World Book Day characters enjoy the new garden at Marlborough St Mary'sWorld Book Day characters enjoy the new garden at Marlborough St Mary'sPupils and staff are enjoying a new garden that has been created in the centre of the playground at Marlborough St Mary’s. Year 3 teacher, Lucy Pash, and the pupils who belong to the Eco Committee were involved in the planning and organisation of the garden.

 

The garden was finally completed over the February holiday by Stuart Saunders of Aelle Landscaping, Oare.  Anne Schwodler told marlborough.news   ‘We are delighted with the garden and Stuart’s creative design.  We wanted a garden the children could walk through and feel a part of.”

“Ever since the school opened eighteen months ago it’s been a project.  The soil quality was poor but this has been solved by using sleepers to raise the level of the garden.   Each year group of pupils will take responsibility for part of the garden, and learn how to grow vegetables and plants.”

There are beds for growing vegetables, a wild fruit garden, flowers, a little orchard, a herb garden and planters.  There is also a garden of reflection.  In that area there are totem poles, painted by the pupils, which tell the creation story.

In the garden of reflection there are also pebbles painted by the pupils cemented into the path.  The pebbles come from a whole school project based on the book, ‘Only One You’ by Linda Kranz.  The book is, Anne Schwodler explained, “A lot about being special and finding your own way.”

It is hoped the garden will reinforce the messages of the book which include:  “Look for rainbows after a rain shower, dream big, be good to yourself, enjoy the simple things in life.”
