Jim Grogan Countryside and Wildlife Award 2014
The Primary School came together on July 15th to choose the recipient of the Jim Grogan Award, and the delighted winner was Leah Barnham of Year 4. This is the fourth year the Award has been given, and celebrates the importance of the natural environment in all our lives. The late Jim Grogan was central to the creation of the Woodland Walk, one of Tarvin's most treasured open spaces.
Nominations this year had come from parents as well as teachers so the final choice had been difficult. Leah's name finally emerged as winner because of the breadth of her involvement with nature both at home, where she helps in the family vegetable garden, and at school. She is also a regular helper in the woodland itself, together with her Grandpa, who is a member of the Community Woodland Trust. Leah is also a member of the Butterfly Preservation Trust and of the RSPB.
The citation detailing Leah's achievements will be added to the permanent record in the beautifully bound commemorative book that is permanently held in the School. Leah received a certificate, a plaque and a book token for all her hard work and commitment.
