School receives donation from care home partnership

CHILDREN will plant time capsules at the site of a new care home after their school formed a partnership with its developers.

St Georges Primary School pupils have already been donated a set of wildlife boards detailing the different species in their pond by developers Castleoak.

It came after representatives visited the school to talk to pupils about the new care home, Annabelle House, in Pastures Avenue.

Pupils will plant time capsules at the home’s opening ceremony in July and visit residents in the future.

Ian Doswell, deputy headteacher, said: “There are also ideas for children reading to the residents and others which we hope to develop in the coming year.
