After the stone ground was built, there was left over stone which members of the Green Team decided to use a pathway going down the right side of the classroom. The rules of the classroom are: don’t disturb class, clean dirt off chair legs, stack chairs neatly and keep classroom clean. Credit: Phoebe Savje for Manchester Essex Multimedia Online

The grass will soon be grown fully and there will be chairs placed around the stone ground. The classroom will soon be available for teachers to begin bringing their students outside to learn.  Credit: Phoebe Savje for Manchester Essex Multimedia Online
