Blooming good times at Herringham Primary Academy...

Herringham Primary Academy are celebrating after winning the ‘Chadwell St Mary in Bloom’ competition as Gold Winners! This summer saw lots of hard work from Mr Fraser, Mrs Owen and their amazing Gardening Club pupils; Evie, Lily- Sue, Sebastian and Alex.

The Gardening Club is run as part of their Open Futures Scheme which supports learning and growing of fruit and vegetables in the school gardens. Once they are harvested, the pupils then learn how to prepare and cook them to create a healthy, nutritious dish, with an easy to follow recipe sheet which they then take home to share with their families.

Mrs Sam Otto, Head of School, said “I am really proud of our Gardening Club for all of their hard work, and delighted that they have received the Gold Award in this year’s Chadwell St Mary in Bloom competition. We have been Silver Award winners before in 2014, but to get Gold is incredible!”
