Thames Water wade in on Empty Classroom Day

Andromeda girl paints pot

Signature spots: outside the classroom, every child in Infants painted a pot for the new rainchains.

Brought in by Andy Ollard – husband of our very own teaching assistant Kim in Cygnus – a team of extremely hardworking volunteers from Thames Water pitched up at school bright and early for a day of hard graft in the wild garden along Carleton Road.

It was no coincidence that today was also Empty Classroom Day, and one major outdoor project was inspired by our volunteers and their know-how about the ecological use of water. The result is beautiful new rainchains that have been installed outside Andromeda and Ursa classes to help irrigate the raised beds there. Visit the school’s own website for more about the children’s other activities today.

Thank you to the tireless parents who contributed to making today such a success, and to the team from Thames Water, who could not have been more helpful and brilliant to have around.
