The Out Door Project

The Outdoor Project

Whilst teenagers battled the high winds and torrential rain on Dartmoor, as part of their Ten Tors challenge, Sherwell Valley parents, pupils and staff braved the elements and teamed up with volunteers from Alcoa to tackle several outdoor projects around the school.

In between sheltering from the showers and drinking cups of tea and coffee provided by the FOSV, they created musical instruments, cleared brambles, laid new paths in the woodland and re-roofed our outdoor classroom. They also planted several fruit trees and flowers around the school, created a herb garden for the children in year two and constructed a greenhouse for the school vegetable garden, which is created from over 1000 plastic 2L drinks bottles!

All of us at Sherwell Valley would like to thank the parent volunteers and children who took part on the day for their help and dedication, despite the weather forecast. We are especially grateful for the volunteers and financial support given by Lisa and her team from Alcoa. If you weren’t able to make it on the day, we are hoping to hold similar events in the future and would welcome as much support as possible!
