Newcastle in Bloom Awards 2017

Posted on 18th Oct 2017

Edenhurst won two awards in the 2017 Newcastle In Bloom competition. We were overall winners in the 'Best Eco School category' and were awarded a Silver Gilt in the 'Allotments' category. Huge well done and thanks to all our staff and children whose hard work contributed to our success!

Teacher Julie Heyhoe-Kirkbride said: “This is the second year we have entered the competition and we are pleased to have picked up an award again.

“We have a gardening club at school where the children can take part on a weekly basis, learning about plant life. We are also involved in a lot of other things such as the litter pledge where we take part in a litter pick of the local area three times a year.”

Julie added: “We were very surprised to get the award for best eco school but we are very happy because it helps us towards our goal of achieving the green flag award.”
