The garden includes a fountain as its centrepiece, which is surrounded by a custom-built circular wooden seating arrangement, designed and built specially for us by Mr. Wallis, father of Miss Wallis (5W).* This seating can hold a whole class of children, making the Zen Garden the perfect area for outdoor teaching.
Poppy and Bugsy, the school's pet rabbits, have been relocated into the Zen Garden and the garden also includes our school fruit/vegetable garden, a composting area and a camomile mound.
The Zen Garden project was suggested by children through the School Council and we are delighted to have been able to follow through on their suggestion to create this space which is already much valued by all of us here at school.
* If any parent would like to contact Mr. Wallis to arrange for bespoke seating for their own gardens , please ask the school office who will be pleased to put you in touch.
