APOLOGIES IF THE TITLE OF THIS STORY HAS ALREADY STARTED YOU SINGING THE HIPPOPOTAMUS SONG!
In eager anticipation of the opening of Christ College’s 475th Anniversary Project – The Eco Reserve – pupils from J3 and J4 in St Nicholas House were called into action to help.
Christ College Bursar, Mr Allen, was on hand to recruit some enthusiastic helpers to firm the ground in preparation for the clay base layer of the pond, which will play a key feature in the eco reserve.
Armed with lots of energy and of course, wellington boots, the happy volunteers descended upon the pond, and after patiently taking instructions from Mr Allen, spent a happy hour stamping and stomping to firm the base and sides of the pond.
This wonderful resource will be officially opened on Friday 8th July at 5pm. It has been a Christ College community effort with parents, friends, staff and pupils all giving up their free time on weekends to help with the digging, planting and general clearing up of the area in preparation for the more landscaped areas of the reserve. The reserve will be a lasting educational legacy of the school’s 475th Anniversary for generations of Breconians to come.
