Holy Trinity CE Primary School dedicates new pocket park for pupils
A Church of England school in North London recently marked the grand opening of their new pocket park.
Holy Trinity CE Primary School in Tottenham began work on their pocket park in 2016 and have transformed a formerly rundown patch of land next to the school playground to create a lush green space for pupils to learn, play and explore.
The new pocket park will provide pupils at Holy Trinity School with room for outdoor learning and includes a greenhouse, nature exploration zone, and an underground classroom.
The new pocket park was officially opened in November at a dedication led by Fr Ian Booth, Area Dean for East Haringey.
Fr Ian said:
“I was delighted to be invited to dedicate Holy Trinity School’s new pocket park. This lush new green space will offer pupils a beautiful and natural environment in which to flourish as they continue to learn and understand God’s world around them.”
Simon Knowles, Executive Headteacher at Holy Trinity School, said:
“Our pocket park project has helped create a beautiful and creative learning environment right in the heart of Tottenham. This much needed green space enables children to learn and look after the natural environment. It also promotes positive wellbeing and mindfulness.”
The pocket park next to Holy Trinity School was made possible thanks to donations from a number of different organisations, including The National Lottery, Greig Trust, and the Tottenham Grammar School Foundation.
