Pinner Park Primary School has achieved yet another remarkable milestone in its journey towards fostering biodiversity and sustainability education, in collaboration with Ground Control and the Bumblebee Conservation Trust.
The school’s project is aimed at enhancing biodiversity awareness for the next generation, and it has already left an indelible mark on the school grounds.
A total of 150 meters of native hedgerow, a thriving micro-forest, fruit-bearing orchard trees, and a wildflower meadow have been planted to promote biodiversity and sustainability.
In an exciting development, Pinner Park Primary School has appointed a group of young “Bumblebee Ambassadors” who are passionate about inspiring and engaging the school community.
A high point in this remarkable journey was the creation of the “Bee the Change Garden” by Ground Control in collaboration with the Bumblebee Conservation Trust.
This enchanting garden made a dazzling appearance at this year’s RHS Chelsea Flower Show, where it showcased micro-actions within landscape design and management that can significantly enhance bumblebee habitats.
Several lucky children from Pinner Park had the privilege of visiting this garden during the show’s press day, gaining first-hand exposure to the wonders of biodiversity.
In a generous gesture to nurture the spirit of learning and further biodiversity education, Ground Control has donated the silver-gilt-winning “Bee the Change Garden” from the RHS Chelsea Flower Show to the school.
Now proudly displayed at the school’s main entrance, this garden serves as a permanent reminder of the importance of preserving nature and local wildlife within the community.
Nick Waldron, Headteacher at Pinner Park Primary School, expressed his enthusiasm for the initiative: “As sustainability and biodiversity form integral components of our School’s curriculum, it is heartening to see our children continue their educational journey alongside Ground Control and the Bumblebee Conservation Trust.
“The award-winning ‘Bee the Change Garden’; stands as an enduring symbol, reminding us all of our shared responsibility in nurturing and safeguarding the natural world within our local community.”
