Most enthusiastic gardeners 2015!

On Thursday 8th October Mrs Brown and Mrs June attended the 2015 Barnet Young Gardeners Award Ceremony along with pupils, Arman and Ajisa, and their Mum, Mrs Husedzinovic.

The judges had visited our Early Years Garden back in the summer and spent time talking with the children about how the garden is used at Woodcroft. At the Awards, held at Sunnyfields School, it was announced that we had won the prize for ‘The Most Enthusiastic Young Gardeners 2015’. We were presented with The Rose Connolly Cup by the Mayor of Barnet. The judges commented that Woodcroft Reception pupils were always enthusiastic and very knowledgeable for children so young. Well done to everyone involved in making our boutique garden so special!
