RHS Success for Stanley Park High Horticulturalists
13th December 2018
Stanley Park High has been selected as one of just 10 schools to design and decorate a Christmas tree to be displayed in the famous glasshouse at RHS Wisley this Christmas.
The prestigious competition – which was open to all primary and secondary schools from London and the South East – asked students to submit unique Christmas tree designs to win a chance to bring their design to life in a ‘spectacular Winter display in the famous glasshouse’.
Stanley Park was selected for their woodland themed design which was created to encourage people to feed the birds this winter. Horticulture teacher Miss Ing said “We created decorations using recycled materials such as dead flower heads, sponges and papier mache. We loved creating the tree and we do hope people will go to RHS Wisley and see it for themselves”.
Amit Amin, Acting Headteacher, said “Horticulture is a popular subject at Stanley Park High and we have some very talented and creative horticulture students. Our year 9s thoroughly enjoyed designing the tree, and spending the day at Wisley decorating it. We are proud with this recognition and that our tree will be on display in the world-famous glasshouse throughout the Christmas holiday.”
The annual competition is part of is the RHS Campaign for School Gardening. The trees will be on view at RHS Wisley from Thursday 6th December to January 9th 2019 and visitors will be able to vote for their favourite tree in the ‘People’s Choice’ Prize.Read Full Story
