This week students at Alsop High School began sowing seeds for a wild flower area in Walton Hall Park. This is the start of a new partnership with the Friends of Walton Hall Park and Scouse Flowerhouse.

The students from Year 7 spent time in the park learning about wild flowers and environmental issues. The highlight of the session was the sowing of seeds to create a new wild flower garden for the wider community to enjoy.

Mr Bull Head of RE comments:

“We were delighted that our students were asked to participate in this initiative. The young people thoroughly enjoyed connecting with their community and hopefully, creating a lasting legacy for others to enjoy.

As restrictions are lifted it provided an opportunity for young people to engage with community partners who seek to make Walton a better place to live, learn and work. The young people thoroughly enjoyed this informal education and they look forward to returning to see the fruits of their labours.”

Alsop would like to thank Mrs Chrissie Byrne Chair of The Friends of Walton Hall Park and her amazing group of volunteers who facilitated this session. The school look forward to developing this partnership further and encouraging young people to take real pride in their community.
