Potters Bar school’s Ground Force gardeners
SCHOOL pupils transformed into a Ground Force team for the day in a bid to create a ‘dream garden’.
Children at Lochinver House gave up their Saturday to help transform a piece of the Potters Bar school’s field into an eye-catching landscape.
The event, held on May 7, saw children, parents and staff all work together on the makeover design created by one of the parents.
The crew worked for six hours creating an area that will be used for outdoor lessons, including a quiet area for story telling, growing vegetables and observing wildlife.
Parents were invited to sponsor the new garden by providing items and equipment needed on the day to get started, or sponsoring luxuries which can be added to the garden at any time.

A school spokeswoman said: “The day brought the whole school community together with parents and staff sawing, digging and painting.
