Funding for improvements to our outdoor space – vote for Kilgarth!

Posted by on Jun 20, 2017 in News | Comments Off on Funding for improvements to our outdoor space – vote for Kilgarth!

Please vote for Kilgarth School when you shop at Tesco stores around the areas of Birkenhead, Wallasey, Bidston and Hoylake. Please ask your friends and family to vote for us too!

Pupils and staff at Kilgarth School in Birkenhead are delighted that our application to the Tesco Bags of Help Grant Scheme has been successful and our project has been put forward to a customer vote in local Tesco stores during July and August 2017. Thousands of groups up and down the country applied for grants from the scheme and these are whittled down to three in each of Tesco’s regions. Your vote decides who should take away the top grant in our region!

“The connection between positive outdoor experience & well-being is well documented . The aim of our project is to transform the outside of Kilgarth School so that our pupils, all of whom have special needs, experience both improved learning & positive experiences. We hope to have a sensory garden and vegetable planters as well as outdoor seating for social activities, learning and eating. We also plan to keep livestock such as chicken.”
Mr Simpson, headteacher

The funding initiative is supported by money from the five pence charge levied on single-use carrier bags.
