At Fairlight we feel it is important for our children to have access to a garden. Many children do not have access to a garden at home but also it gives us a chance to learn all about plants, the environment, life cycles and so much more.
It is also a really nice "oasis of calm" in our playground.
Our School Garden has been through many different stages.
It is called Wise Owls Garden in honor of Hazel Varah- former Chair of Governor and Freelance Artist and key member of Same Sky. Hazel used to run a book sale in the garden after school and we felt it would be a lovely way to remember this by naming the garden after her.
Today the garden in maintained by a small team of parents who keep it looking amazing.
