Many of you may have spotted President Kennedy Students on BBC Midlands Today before Easter. Our Gardening Club led by Mrs Howard was invited to “muck in” with David Moorcroft and Master Gardener Philip Turvil at Ryton Organic Gardens as Coventry is being urged to “Grow for Gold” ahead of this Summer’s Olympics. Mrs Coward displayed photographs and visuals describing how she and the Gardening Club have developed the Bridge Garden from a bare patch of ground. Working alongside Ryton’s experts our students demonstrated how we can all get growing in our gardens and window boxes using coloured plants that reflect teams or countries such as using red, white and blue plants to make a Union Jack bed. The initiative was launched by David Moorcroft and our gardeners were subjected to a lot of media attention during the day. Mrs Coward commented “the day was full of learning and inspiration for our students and they should be proud of the way they represented President Kennedy School and the young people in Coventry.”

The Gardening Club is now considering planting its own Olympic inspired bed in front of Main Reception.
