Bishop opens school’s peace garden
PUPILS in Stilton are seeking peace and tranquillity in their new garden.
Stilton Primary School’s school council designed a peace garden for the pupils to enjoy.
The garden, situated at the front of the school comes complete with wind chimes, benches, fragrant flowers and colourful wall plaques.
The Bishop of Huntingdon, the Rt Revd David Thomson, opened and blessed the garden. He was joined by pupils from the school who helped him to cut the ribbon.
Deputy headteacher Helen Smallman said: “Following on from our building works, we had an area that needed attention and therefore we decided to open our own peace garden.
“All of the pupils contributed to making the garden, by decorating the wall plaques and planting pots of flowers.
“There are also olives and peace roses to add to the tranquillity.
“The garden is proving very popular with the children, many of whom have already used it. It also changed the look of the school.”
