Bishop opens school’s peace gar­den

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Neighbourhood News -

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.”
