Wild About Ellesmere Primary School

Ellesmere Primary School is bidding to bag a massive cash boost from the Tesco Bags of Help initiative.

The Wild About School project is one of three community initiatives that shoppers in Ellesmere Tesco will be able to vote for throughout May and June. Customers will cast their vote using a token given to them at the check-out in store each time they shop.

The school could benefit from up to £4,000 to further develop the recently installed school pond, create a mini natural sciences laboratory and introduce an allotment for children to enjoy home-grown produce in their school meals.

Andrew Everett, Headteacher said: “This project will allow us to deliver our PSHE and science curriculum in a more engaging way for the children, using the outdoor environment to enhance and support their learning. Creating habitats, constructing bird boxes, bug hotels and engaging in pond dipping will all encourage an appreciation and passion for the natural environment.”
