Forest school lockdown project

Forest school lockdown project Whilst the world was on pause, this year’s forest school team were planning their John Muir legacy project. Following on from the previous year’s inspirational visit from Martin Crawford, and combining ideas from Agro-forestry, they have embraced the idea of creating Priory’s very own Forest Food Garden. Put simply a Forest Food Garden is a low maintenance garden, which is filled with plants that produce edible fruits, nuts or foliage. They are usually designed to mimic a natural forest. Dr John Parry inspired our project when he very kindly offered to donate a number of fruit trees to the school, so the students spent time researching the plants to find the best spot for each of the trees and decide how we would create forest like space. Following Martins advice, the group carefully cleared a plot of land just behind our music block. They measured it, tested the PH of the soil and plotted how the time of day affects the light. This week the team took delivery of a variety of wonderful young fruit trees, pears, apples, quince, cherry, buckthorn and berry bushes to name a few. The trees had been lovingly looked after by Tony Whitbread, on our behalf, since the first lockdown had brought everything to a halt. Meridian TV came to school to capture the moment that Tony and his wife handed the plants over.   Working together the Forest School Team planted the trees in just the right spot to thrive and we hope, one day a beautiful mini forest will provide edible delights for the whole school to enjoy.       We have still to create a woodland pathway and plant some understory plants which will attract pollinators and provide a haven for wildlife but we the project is well underway. We are very much looking forward to our summer celebration when we will welcome visitors to our young forest food garden in July.   If you would like to see our Meridian News broadcast click the following link: https://www.itv.com/news/meridian/2021-03-24/school-pupils-create-forest-food-garden-to-learn-about-sustainability If you would like to find out more about Forest Gardens see this webcast about Martin Crawford click the following link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q_m_0UPOzuI If you would like to hear about our sister project at the University of Sussex click the following link: https://anchor.fm/ffgsussex76/episodes/Foraging-For-Thought-Ep-1-escrk1 If you would like to be part of our Green United environmental projects please speak to Mrs Twilley.  Please click the following link for further information: https://greenunited.org.uk/

Lewes Food Banks Appeal

Help Lewes Food Banks raise £7002.00. With the current lock-down it is very difficult for Lewes Food Banks to have physical collections and donations outside supermarkets. However, lock-downs do not stop individuals and families needing help from food-banks, in fact the demand is increasing. Therefore the Food Banks have shifted to a financial appeal - and are looking to raise £7002.00 (the financial amount matches the 7002 food and household items donated at the Christmas collection). If you would like more information, or to donate money to the appeal, then please visit their Fundraising Page https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/valentines-day-food-banks-appeal-tickets-136613593937

Macbeth by Priory School (Shakespeare Schools Festival Nov 2020)

Despite the challenges of lockdown and restrictions of Covid, a dedicated group of students have demonstrated commitment, reliance and determination to rehearse and deliver a ‘punk’ version of Shakespeare’s Macbeth. It gives us great please to be able to present a video recording of the live show which was held in front of a socially distanced audience of Priory staff. After watching this I am sure you will agree that the students have demonstrated so many positive attributes – we are so proud of them! Our thanks also go to Ms Dimoglou and Ms McCall for their guidance and support plus the staff who helped with the set, costumes,  lighting  and filming and many other necessary aspects of running a performance.
