Pharoah’s bid to rule at palace

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - School Report -

Pupils at Ash­ford’s Wyvern School are hop­ing their Pharoah the Scare­crow will wow the judges at a top flower show.

Young­sters from the Great Chart school built the scare­crow, also known as Bob, as their en­try for the Royal Hor­ti­cul­tural So­ci­ety school gar­den­ing bird-scarer com­pe­ti­tion at the Hamp­ton Court Palace Flower Show.

Scare­crows had to take in­spi­ra­tion from the theme ‘world cos­tume’ and Wyvern chose Egypt.

The pharoah scare­crow is among 37 en­tries from schools across the south east se­lected to be dis­played at the show, which opened on Tues­day and runs un­til Sun­day.

The pupils went to the show to set up their dis­play.

Wyvern as­sis­tant head teacher Sharon Barkley said: “The scare­crows will be on dis­play with vis­i­tors able to vote for their favourite. The votes will be counted at noon on Sun­day, with the win­ning scare­crow be­ing an­nounced on the RHS web­site.”

Mem­bers of the school’s gar­den­ing club also de­signed a ‘Pooh Heaven’ gar­den for the RHS at Wis­ley. The Wyvern young­sters were among 32 schools who en­tered the con­test and were de­lighted to pick up the ‘most dec­o­ra­tive’ award.
