Nature reserve underway for Campion School

VOLUNTEERS and businesses have teamed up to help give Campion School’s nature reserve a makeover.

The Leamington school is undergoing a transformation which has seen a pond area excavated and shrubs planted.

By the start of the new term the area should be ready for pupils to use, but also for older people with dementia to stop by with their carers.

The nature reserve at the Sydenham Drive school was first opened nearly 20 years with help from the Tree Council but in recent years, the school has struggled to find the resources to maintain the area.

Headteacher Jassa Panesar said: “We’re really excited about reinstating the nature reserve and creating an area which our students and primary schools can take advantage of and contribute to learning right across the curriculum.

“Without the support of Age UK Warwickshire, the Tree Council and local businesses like AC Lloyd, we wouldn’t be able to make this happen, so our thanks go to everyone who is contributing so much to the project.”
