The Mount sows the seeds

The pupils of The Mount, St Mary’s Preparatory School Crosby, have been eagerly taking part in the Mount Eden project at the school.

The new garden area will be used as an outdoor classroom for science lessons, and has already been prepared by the gardening club with broad beans and an array of winter pansies; as well as garlic for the school kitchen.

“The Mount Eden Project is a whole school initiative, and it’s had a wonderful start,” said headteacher, Michael Collins.

“The children have really enjoyed taking their science lessons outdoors, and beginning the planting programme.

“The seeds and plants have been carefully chosen to complement the children’s learning, and to give them the opportunity to learn more about healthy eating, sustainability and biodiversity.”
