We currently have re-homed/recycled 12 beautiful gold fish to join our existing goldfish, Fish & Chips. Our current pond is in the middle of our tarmac playground, which is surrounded by buildings. We need to move our pond to provide a more suitable area, which would include making the environment more 'green'. The existing pond is beyond repair.
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
The children at the school love looking at the pond and trying to care for our goldfish. Many of them live on estates and do not have any access to pets and this resource at the school enhances their school day. Plus having responsibility for the fish and habitat leads to ownership and provides enjoyment. This is an area that the school finds difficult to finance with the current budget restraints. However, the benefits to the children, staff and parents, in terms of enjoyment and having a nice habitat is difficult to measure.
Steps to get it done:
About the space
School is locate off busy main roads, with an estate housing opposite and flats to the side and around the playground. With views of the Shard and many, many office buildings. Very little green space and places of recreation nearby.
London Borough of Southwark
