Every year there is a Garden Show in Antrim Castle Gardens. This year it is on from 4th - 6th May. Every year we make a scarecrow for Scarecrowland. This is usually at the main entrance and the scarecrows which come from many integrated schools form a line along the paths. In 2012 Rosie was the best in the show. In 2011 Marigold won first prize as well as Bottle Betty. Wendy and Fleur were both Highly commended.
This year the children made Bird Man. Thanks to all who contributed something for the scarecrow. Lets hope he wins a prize!

The Eco committee members came out to the tunnel today at 11am to get the seeds planted before we went off on Easter holidays.
A special word of thanks to Sammy our caretaker for preparing the raised beds. They all needed to be cleared of weeds and covered in black polythene to warm up the soil.
Each class is allocated a raised bed and the children planted either peas, mange tout, beetroot, rocket or strawberries.
Sammy has a new watering system rigged up. Hopefully that will provide a more consistent flow of water than we had last year. It is a short window to produce fruit and vegetables before the end of June. Hopefully through "trial and error" we will have something for the children to sample before they go off on summer holidays.

Joe and Maxine helped to take out the summer bedding plants and put in the little violas for the winter. Last year we put in daffodil bulbs underneath the polyanthus and the bulbs pushed the plants out. Hopefully these plants will last until the springtime.
