Falconer School Wins Best in Show 2013 at RHS Wisley
Since last term, the Art room has been full of wood. Logs, twigs, branches and sticks. Many Falconer students have been busy sharpening, snapping, twisting and constructing this wood into a castle. We called it Fortress Falconer. It's purpose is to Defend Nature. It provides a home in which helpful insects can live. A place from which these mini eco-knights can launch attacks on unwanted pests. This help us keep our garden organic.
The Horticulture group planted many seeds that grew into plants and flowers that attract bees and butterflies.
Just before half term, Mr Dennemont and Mr Hodges went down to RHS Wisley and entered our Fortress, along with some of the plants into the 'Budding Gardeners 2013' competition.
All of the other entrants where to a high standard. The judges had a tough time choosing the winner. But, in the end, when they did, they chose Falconer Fortress as Best in Show!.
This is a huge a huge achievement for the boys of Falconer School – one the whole community should be very proud of.
Once again, you proved your creativity, your talent and your ability to work hard as a team!
Well Done! You should be very proud of yourselves.
The Fortress will soon be on display at school.
