A CHAPLAINCY garden has been created at St Augustine’s High School in Redditch.
In late February school staff were joined by three members of the Laudauto Si group from Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church who helped them create the garden.
Together with 10 students from Years 9, 11 and 12, more than 30 trees were planted including silver birch, rowan and wild cherry.
The group also focused on identifying suitable areas across the school site to find locations for bug houses which need bark, moss, twigs and leaves.
The school’s memorial garden was also given a re-fresh with new compost, and spring bulbs which were kindly donated by Tesco and Asda.
The site manager had already made raised beds out of recycled plastic and these were filled with top soil donated by Redditch Skip Hire.
“We will be planting vegetables, flowers and herbs during the spring and we will be looking forward to reaping the rewards of our hard work over the summer!” said school spokeswoman Anne Eggins.
“Overall, it was a lovely morning and it was great for the students to forge relationships with the Laudauto Si group from the church.”
