Hollickwood's Happy Hedge Muswell Hill

Diana Voxerbrant By Diana Voxerbrant

My son's primary school in Muswell Hill is the small school with the big heart. We want the outside to reflect all the creativity and love through a fun hedge and other happy green spaces.

Currently, our school looks a bit dreary from the outside and does not reflect the vibrancy and joy we are experiencing within. We've just finally received a glowing good from Ofsted - finally recognising our vibrant community. We do so many great things (including secret gardens and beekeeping) which isn't visible to the wider public. We will transform the outside hedge using children's drawings to inspire the design. The School Gardening Club needs wheelbarrows, manure and other equipment to transform our other green spaces. This will benefit all the families and individuals connected to our school but also the street itself. Some of the funds will be used to train and support the wider community in maintaining both hedge and gardens. We plan to involve the children as much as we can in the process so that they can take ownership and feel pride in their school and community.

What we'll deliver:

  • A happy hedge sculpture and/or permanent decoration
  • Happier green play areas in and around the school
  • Create spaces in the school where parents, children and staff can meet and play in an inspiring environment
  • Gardening training to the school's children and families
  • Repair our wild garden pond

Why it's a great idea:

Hollickwood Primary School can show what a truly beautiful community we have. The children can be proud of their school for having the happiest hedge in London, which they will help create.
