Digging deep for funds

STAFF, children and families of St Barnabas school in Warmley climbed the highest mountain in South Wales to raise money for their allotment. Their sponsored hike up Pen y Fan raised £1425, which will go towards a greenhouse and some poly tunnels as well as new tools.

Headteacher Sarah Sheppard said: “We are incredibly proud of the dedication and spirit shown by our staff, children, and their families who participated in this challenging hike. Their incredible efforts will ensure the continued growth and success of our allotment, a vital resource that provides invaluable outdoor learning experiences for all our children.” 

The school’s allotment plays a crucial role in enriching the curriculum. It allows pupils to develop a deeper connection to nature. The greenhouse will further enhance this experience.
