Welwyn Garden City school pond now complete
ECO-MINDED youngsters, who got their hands dirty, saw their school’s pond finished this week.
A fancy dress fun run, in which 450 Springmead pupils participated in March, helped raise �3,400 to build the pond at the WGC school.
And work, which begun with members of the Eco-Buddies, who organised the fun run, getting stuck in with the digging, which is now complete.
The pond is 6.5 metres wide and will be used by the children for pond dipping during science lessons.
Helen Payne, a teacher at the Hillyfields school, said: “We are not having fish in the pond, but expect nature to take its course and we will wait for wildlife to be attracted over there.”
