Thorney Close Primary School

"Where Learning Blossoms..."

Clean and Green Event

On Friday, 6th March, 2020 (9.00am—3.00pm) we will be hosting our first ‘Clean and Green’ event. The aim of the day is to launch an ongoing project that will refresh the school landscape and it will begin with a spring clean of the overgrown areas around the school perimeter fence.

We have arranged for some volunteers from the Sunderland West Clean and Green team to come along and help us get started as well as gardeners from Sunderland City Council.  However, for this launch to be even more successful, we need help from our school community.

Children will be doing their bit to improve the Sensory Garden and playground areas during the day, whilst also learning about plants and growth. But, it would be fantastic to see some of our parents/carers and neighbours joining in too!

All gardening equipment will be provided as well as plenty of refreshments to keep you going.  You don’t need to commit to the whole day — an hour or two will do. 

Please just let the office know and they will add your name to the list of volunteers.
