A start to the Green Street Project!
Many thanks to staff, governors and members of the Parents' Association, who came into school at half term to help technology teacher Mr Biswell dig soil and prepare the ground in preparation for the new gardening club.
The gardening club, 'The Green Street Project', is aimed at KS3 students and will be starting at St Clement Danes in the very near future. Students joining the club will have an opportunity to learn about horticulture and seasonality as well as environmental and sustainability issues. Members of the school's STEM club will also be getting involved in the project.
The students will learn how to produce chutneys, sauces, pickles and baked goods with the vegetables they grow. These items will then be sold to raise funds, helping to make the club a sustainable initiative, whilst also teaching students enterprise skills. This process will allow students to see the full food journey from seed to plate.
We hope that our KS3 students will take advantage of this exciting opportunity, and thank staff, Parents' Association members and governors for giving up their time to support this very worthy project.
