Easter Approaches

Unfortunately the weather is not currently what we would have liked. Last year we had a warm and sunny March, not so to date this year, but we have our fingers crossed for on the whole a much drier summer than 2012!

This is on the wall next to where pedestrians walk from the car park to our offices.

The club is a group of around 10 pupils aged 11- 14 who give up their Wednesday evenings to work extremely hard attempting to redevelop a small enclosed courtyard into a garden. Unfortunately, the vast majority of the area is covered with tatty concrete, garden tools are limited in number and quality and every improvement is being done on a tight budget of around 50p! Thus it is extremely slow, although enthusiastic progress. The perseverance of these pupils to create a garden for the benefit of the whole school is admirable. They have planned a vegetable patch and have grand designs for raised planters around the perimeter of the enclosed courtyard, of which two have been created out of recycled pallet wood. The aim is to create both a functional and attractive garden in the most environmentally friendly way possible. If Cove School were to win this competition, it would provide a...
