Spring fling

The Academy of St Francis of Assisi opened its doors to the community for their annual ‘Spring Fling’.

During this festival, they celebrate their connection to their neighbours and the local community by organising a day to rejuvenate one of their small, local parks

They sent volunteers to help dig and re-sow the wild flower gardens they began three years ago. The extra hands made light work of the day and were able to divert some of their younger helpers to the Lodge gardens, where a giant, flowering ASFA was planted.

Vice principal, Ian Kelly, said: “All of this work of course fits in with our specialism of sustainability – the programmes we run have enabled us to receive a prestigious ‘Green Flag’ for four consecutive years and means that we are featured on Ofsted’s good practice website for the way we tackle our environmental responsibilities.
