Two of our students from Larches High School and staff from Preston Vocational Centre took part in a project to rebuild old timber raised planter beds in Concrete Block at Moor Hey School in Lostock Hall. The project allowed the students to put skills in to practice and support another school in need. The spirit of community work empowers the young people.
The area had originally 3 raised beds for planting, the beds where made of timber that had rotted away and become unsafe. The staff from PVC started by digging the foundations for the planters and laid concrete footings. The following week the students Byron and Charlie spent 2 days building the raised beds in 150mm concrete block with sand a cement. This will allow the students of Moor Hey School the ability to take part in their horticulture sessions in the future.
Our pupils Byron and Charlie have made a great difference to the Horticulture area for the school through their hard work and determination. Both students have gained valuable realistic work experience that will support their future applications for employment or Apprenticeships.
Well done to Byron & Charlie!
