Time to relax in pupils' secret garden

Secret Garden, Castle School

THERE'S a rather unusual secret garden at Castle Junior School in Knaresborough!  

Thanks to the work of one dedicated parent, Mrs Anna Hay, a small cloakroom area has been transformed into a calm, relaxing area for children, parents and visitors.
A talented artist, Mrs Hay has spent several weeks painting scenes from the book "The Secret Garden".

Delightful details include spiders, butterflies and snails as well as life-size children and colourful plants.

Headteacher Mrs Emma Higgins said: "With the addition of some furniture and plants that have been donated by our parents, the area has become a focal point for the children in school. We are very grateful to Mrs Hay for her hard work."
