School Garden Achieves Level 5 RHS Award
St Joseph’s have been members of the RHS (Royal Horticultural Society – the leading gardening charity) Campaign for School Gardening for a number of years. As we have developed our garden we have shared our progress with the RHS and achieved award levels as we progress.
Level 5 is the highest award level and we have successfully met all the criteria which included sharing our knowledge outwith school which we did in our work creating a garden area a t Northcote Lodge. We have been presented with a certificate, plaque, vouchers and the right to use the logo on our school publications.
Less than 2% of schools in the school garden campaign have achieved level 5 so this is a great achievement for our school and a testament to the hard work of our pupils and how well they look after our grounds.
Well done and thank you to you all!
