Lonesome Primary gets green fingers

What: Lonesome Primary School holds Environmental Week
When: 19 – 23 March 2007
Where: Lonesome Primary School, Grove Road, Mitcham, CR4 1SD

Lonesome Primary School are learning about the environment this week by getting their hands dirty as they create new gardens on the school grounds.

Approximately forty families took part in the Big Dig on a sunny afternoon. Everyone worked hard to dig four new garden areas that will be planted this week with plants donated by the children.

The children will also be learning about water conservation, litter, transport to school, biodiversity, reuse and recycling, and alternative energy sources.

On Thursday 22 March, children in year 6 are making solar powered models.

David Winters, Headteacher of Lonesome Primary School said:

‘What an inspiring week! The whole community has come together to help the school and think about our local environment as well as wider environmental issues. The children have shown their interest and commitment in caring for their environment to sustain their future.’
