The Vibrant Schools project is designed to educate the pupils about eating healthily, growing and nurturing, but also about the importance of working together collectively to achieve positive outcomes.
Pupils take part in a series of workshops to design and build planters for flowers, fruit and vegetables. They measure space ins side the school grounds on the identified area for the Grow project and then perform risk assessments in order for them to actually build and install them.
Pupils are involved with a real life project whereby their input is needed weekly at sessions this enables them to excel and step up into new found roles within the groups they work in. Pupils tend to feel a sense of ownership to the areas in school and can relate to a range of tasks and skills they have undertaken in a short space of time.
