EGS Gardening Club is back up and running again for its second year and we are happy to welcome new members. The club runs every Wednesday lunchtime at 1.30 and other activities are also run over the course of the year such as a visiting horticulturist, a chef’s workshop, a visit to an organic nursery and a trip to the local market to sell our produce.
Last year proved very successful with the students, who enjoyed selling their homegrown vegetables and plants at Enfield Town market. This year we are hoping to grow a healthy crop of herbs and vegetables to use in our practical food lessons, stimulating an interest in food provenance and an appreciation for the environment.
Over the last couple of weeks, we have been preparing our raised beds and planting chard, kale and lettuce. We have also been using the compost bin that we built last year to recycle our food waste from the Food Technology kitchen. If you are interested in joining this club, please speak to Mrs Broadley, Mrs Turbett or Mrs Mittins.
Diwali, the Hindu festival of lights, is the most popular of all the festivals from South Asia. It is also an occasion for celebration by Jains and Sikhs. Come along and see our display in the library!
“I’m absolutely delighted for the boys that got the results they wanted and so richly deserved. A record breaking 70% of our boys got the “magic 5″ that opens the doors for their next chapter in either employment, apprenticeships or further education. We’re busy enrolling today for our 6th form and we look forward to the forthcoming year.”- Chris Lamb, Headteacher
