Britain in Bloom

Well done to all the pupils who met with the judges for the Britain in Bloom competition in the holidays. Aberdeen is one of five British cities competing for the city category in the prestigious competition. Airyhall School was chosen to represent Aberdeen City on the 9th August to support the entry. Pupils from the Eco Group met with the judges and showed off all the work the school has been doing in our own school garden, community garden and also the work that the pupils do at Slopefield Allotments. It was a great honour to represent the city and the pupils were excellent at informing the judges about our activities. Please see the link below for further information. We will get to find out the results in October.

Meanwhile we are also entering the ‘Aberdeen in Bloom’ competition for the ‘School Garden’ category.

Each class planted their own sunflower seeds donated by Beautiful Scotland and we hope that the sunflowers will be ready for when the pupils get back to school. Some have already flowered. We will measure them and see which flowers grow the tallest.

Pupils also need to have a look at our ‘Community Garden’ where  they might spot some fruit on the fruit trees that we planted two years ago.
