WE WON the competition!  This means we will receive garden vouchers and a trip for 30 pupils to Shuttleworth!  

Below you will find some pictures of the children making the scarecrow before seeing the finished creation!  One of our older classes and FunZone, our before and after school club, put together our beautiful entry this year!

For Harvest in September 2022, we supported the NEED project: https://theneedproject.org/

The children were asked to bring in tinned or packaged goods which are then delivered to those who are experiencing food deprivation in Central Bedfordshire.  As you can see, as always, our St. Mary's families did us proud and we collected 23 full bags of food for the Need project!

Clophill Open Gardens

Each class designed and produced a garden for the Clophill Open Gardens event in June 2022.  We proudly displayed our gardens in our 'peaceful garden' within our school playground.  Lots of visitors came over the weekend to view our beautiful displays.
