Friars Primary (Foundation) School By Friars Primary (Foundation) School

New home for our recycled goldfish, made from reclaimed materials, as our existing pond is at the end of it life.

Southwark Idea stage

This project is preparing for fundraising. Click Like to show your support, or Follow for updates on this project's journey.

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:

  • Improve the habitat
  • Provide a new pond area
  • Replant an area

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:

  • Being able to source a new pond
