School Huskar Memorial Garden

Leave a comment

You may have seen the new garden taking place at the front of school. It is being transformed into a memorial herb garden to commemorate the children that lost their lives in the Huskar Pit Disaster in 1838. The garden has been designed in such a way that children (and adults!) will be able to walk along the gravel path and plants will then be put around the path to create a herb garden in memory of the disaster. Members of class 4 have helped to put in the first few plants, with further seeds and herbs being planted in the coming weeks. A big thank you to the Church volunteers that have already spent many hours getting the garden to the point it is now. The garden is set to be ‘opened’ on 4th July, exactly 180 years to the date since the disaster.
