Gardening at Kelloe Primary School

The whole staff team at Kelloe Primary School have embraced the outdoors and got the growing bug! With support from OASES they have developed courtyard growing areas and a raised bed for each class outside their classroom. OASES kick started the project with a gardening skills twilight. Sessions throughout the year with each class took the school through a whole growing season and gave staff the skills and knowledge to continue the work. The staff have also been inspired to use their new growing areas and the rest of their school grounds to deliver the curriculum through a bespoke twilight.
