Daffodil planting to commemorate the Covid-19 pandemic
On Monday 1st November, our entire school community came together to plant daffodil bulbs at the front of our school as part of a project conceived and led by Sixth Form students.
As part of a series of projects intended to mark what everyone has been through as part of the pandemic, students requested to plant daffodil bulbs in a very prominent location at the front of our school. Having raised £450, we purchased 2000 daffodil bulbs and set about digging and preparing the planting area. In just one day, all bulbs were planted and every member of our community had an opportunity to reflect on the personal impact of the pandemic whilst making a positive impact to the environment.
Hopefully, when our bulbs flower every March, our entire school community can remember this act of togetherness and can celebrate our strong sense of community with a bright and cheerful display of daffodils in bloom.
In the spring make sure you look out for the blooms on the High Street as you walk past the school.
Further projects planned for this year include a time capsule, the creation of a mural and various literary competitions.
