RAF Shawbury - Sensory Garden project
We are very thankful tot the volunteers from squadron 705 who gave up their time to support our sensory garden make over project. They worked hard tidying, digging, painting, planting and generally giving our garden and sensory area some much needed TLC. We are looking forward to spending time in it now it is much more inviting. We are also thankful to them for bringing the helicopter to land on our school field and giving pupils the opportunity to climb on board! Amazing! This was part of our off timetable Environment Week. The Eco-Warriors also received a talk from the RAF team about the new helicopters and their noise pollution reducing features.
