Greetings to all of our friends in Kafuro and also at other UK and Ugandan schools. This afternoon was School Grounds Day at Liss Junior School where the whole school works on various projects. This included:
Putting up lard balls to feed birds.
Planting flowers in the pots around the front and side of the school to make it look beautiful
Refurbishing our minibeast hotel
Cleaning and refurbishing our butterfly houses
Clearing raised beds and planting them with vegetables
Harvesting our rhubarb crop
Clearing litter around the school and gathering wood
Preparing our bottle greenhouse for the new pots with seeds in them
Clearing the main pathway up to our nature area
Clearing the pond in the nature area and cutting back willow.
We were given lots of help by parents who gave up their afternoon to support the children. we were also helped by Joe Williams, a ranger from QECP, who came in on his day off to help the children clean the pond and cut back the willow. Joe is an outstanding example of community engagement by a ranger.
We were all really happy with our new tidy school and we can’t wait for our new crops to grow.
