GREEN-fingered students at Our Lady of Mount Carmel Catholic First School are ensuring spring has sprung at the Beoley Road site thanks to a new after school activity.

The Gardening Club will see Year 1 pupils have a blooming good time from 3.15pm to 4.15pm as part of a scheme run by the school’s meal provider, Baileys.

The group will provide seeds, seed trays and soil for the children and film short videos instructing how to grow and look after fruit and vegetable plants, focusing on organic methods.

Best of all, during the harvest period Mount Carmel children will be able to try their own produce as part of their school lunch.
