Westgate Primary pupils enjoy the joys of nature in peace garden

WESTGATE Primary School pupils can enjoy the joys of nature in their new peace garden.

Children in Year 6 have been clearing an overgrown area and with support from Hill Close Gardens are creating an area to relax.

And Warwick Rotary Club has presented the school with a peace pole for their new garden. It is designed to spread a message of creating a caring society at home and abroad. The message is written on the pole in eight languages to represent different nationalities of children in the school.

Headteacher Matthew Watson said: “We are going to plant lots of flowers and shrubs which will provide a quiet area for the children, which is so important, especially today. The peace pole is a wonderful addition to our garden, and we are very grateful to Warwick Rotary Club for providing us with one.”

Rotarian Margaret Morley added: “As an organisation Rotary is totally committed to working with schools in any way they feel necessary to support their Peace Education Curriculum.”
