School plant growing competition


Each year ADAS provides plants or seeds to St James school. The plants to be grown over the summer are chosen by the school parliament who also set the judging criteria.

In June/July ADAS committee members visit the school to hand out the plants/seeds and are asked many interesting question by the pupils.

In September/October ADAS committee members return to school to judge the plants that are brought back into school by the pupils.

In 2018 pupils grew Pumpkins for Halloween. In 2017 pupils grew sunflowers with one of the winning plants nearly 3 metres tall.

In 2019 the plants to be grown are Courgettes. Judging will be based on longest and heaviest from emails entries sent in by the pupils over the summer. Prizes will be presented in early October in the school assembly.
