Replace 12 yr old and incorrectly laid liner, add pebbles and rocks for wildlife access (some already donated), tame self-set saplings and wait for rain - Just a few things to finish this area! Completed, this secure space will provide an inspiring cross-curricula study area available to a wide range of multi faith, multi-ethnic, young local residents - boys and girls and staff.

What we'll deliver:

  • Wildlife pond
  • Dipping\Observation area

Why it's a great idea:

Firstly, our newt colony, frogs and toads need a safe new home. North London students’ learning will progress with practical experiences and everyone’s, both adults' and children's, mental health will be enhanced by this oasis.

Steps to get it done:

  • Clearing overgrown vegetation
  • Appointing contractor
  • Design dipping pathway and edging
  • Establish Science Dept cultivation area
  • Removal of two trees currently overhanging area and disrupting pathways (others planted)
  • Provide Health and Safety Guidelines for users
