2016-17 School Grounds
Our next Garden Event is “The Super Spring Spruce Up” which will be held on Saturday 1st April 2017 between 10am – 2pm. Please come along and make our Garden look great!
We held a very successful Garden Event on the 29th October 2016. We painted large wooden lettering saying KIRKHILL PRIMARY which is now positioned on our school fence. We tidied up the willow, side, nursery and front gardens of our school. The “Willow” garden is now cleared and is ready to plant grass seed in the Spring term. We are looking forward to designing and building new planters for each class to use in this area too.
2015-16 School Grounds
We held a Great Gardening Event on Saturday 3rd October. This was well attended and around 12-15 families helped dig, weed, plant and tidy up the 3 main areas – the large flowerbeds to the front of the school, the nursery garden and the willow hedge at the side. A huge thank you, to all who got
involved, the garden looks great.
Our Super-Spring Spruce up event on Saturday, 23rd April w
as highly successful. Many families and friends of the school joined together to improve our playground. We managed to paint the outside nursery fence and the gazebo in bright primary colours. We painted tyres in rainbow colours to make a rainbow feature in our garden. Each class will plant up a tyre. We weeded and edged the front borders and cut back the bushes at the back of the school.
Phase 2 will be completed by the summer holidays. The following works will be carried out:
- fill the sand pits with new sand.
- refresh the stones around the sandpit.
- paint the inside of the nursery fence and outside noticeboard in bright primary colours.
- paint/varnish Kirkhill Nursery sign.
The “Gardening Group” continue to tidy up the garden. They have potted up tubs for the Autumn and re-planted daffodil bulbs. They have dug up some tatties we planted last Spring. Rachel our cook served these potatoes for lunch the next day. Yum!
This group have made fat balls for the birds. These have been put up on our feeding tables for the birds to enjoy!
They have researched the importance of worms in the garden and will be planting potatoes shortly.
Willow Garden – there are continuing works going on at present to smarten up this area of the school. We are hoping that each class will have a planter and grow different produce. Keep your eyes peeled!
