West Drayton kids get to grow their own

Children in a West Drayton school can now develop their green fingers thanks to a new greenhouse provided by a local trust, reports the Uxbridge Gazette.

The £22,000 building was opened yesterday at Harmondsworth Primary school in School Road, West Drayton, by the mayor of Hillingdon, Shirley Harper-O'Neill.

David Brough, chairman of Hillingdon Community Trust, said projects like these benefit not just the children but the wider community.

"The Trust is very pleased to have been able to fund this fantastic new facility and we are delighted it is enriching the education of children at Harmondsworth Primary," the paper reported he said.

Harmondsworth Primary is accredited as a healthy school under the Healthy Schools programme. Its teaching assistants and children benefit from better Ofsted ratings and higher levels of pupil participation in high quality physical education, according to recently published independent research.
