Our Spiritual Gardens
Our flourishing Spiritual Gardens were developed as spaces where children and adults can experience stillness, reflection, find quiet and calm and to allow for prayer whilst also being able to explore ‘Big Questions’. They are spaces which provide opportunities to expand and explore growth – spiritually, morally, socially, culturally and academically.
Our internal Spiritual Garden is well used and nurtured by children and staff at St Edward’s. This is what it looks like…
In 2019, every child, member of staff and volunteers from the community developed our second garden area. Our flower beds and vegetable field represent areas of our local community that are special and improtant to us and our village. We are the proud winners of the Leek Town Council & Leek Allotment Holders & Gardeners Association ‘Best School Garden 2019‘
This year, we are developing another area of our school grounds as a spiritual garden. This area will be accessible to both the school and the local community so that we can grow in faith together.
Watch this space to see how our third garden grows!
