Sea Air Spells Success for School Sunflower!
It was success for those Canterbury schools who participated in a sunflower competition as part of Basepoint’s “join us and grow” campaign with their sunflowers growing magnificently in the remaining few weeks. St Alphege Church of England Primary School continued the trend they began from the start by growing the tallest plant out of the schools participating in the Canterbury area, measuring over two metres high, reaching a grand height of 209cm.St Alphege were really pleased and are now looking forward to their prize of £250 worth of vouchers. Perhaps the sea air as well as the sun had a part to play in their success! At St Stephen’s Junior school, ‘the environmental club’ who came 4th loved taking part and being involved whilst the children at St Thomas’s Catholic School celebrated being 3rd with more photographs of the children and their sunflower. The ‘gardening club’ at Blean Primary School as expected did do well in the competition coming 2nd place. They were very excited and put their success down to plenty of magic plant food! St Thomas’s also celebrated their win in the ‘Sunflower Colouring Competition' with one of their pupils excellent effort for which they will be presented with an Artists Set.
