Pupils at East Linton Primary School are working to revamp their school garden thanks to support from Stewart Milne Homes.

The housebuilder has given £1,000 of funding to the school as part of its Eco-gardens initiative.

Overseen by Gill Gardner, East Linton Primary School headteacher, children from the school’s P3 and P4 classes are now working to provide a space for pupils to learn and play.

The funding has been used to purchase a planter for each class in the school, with parent volunteers helping to clear spaces ready for planting.

Mrs Gardner said: “Pupils have had a brilliant time working together to bring the school’s garden to life over the last few weeks.

“A huge thanks to our parent council, who have played such an important role in this exciting project.”

Launched last year, Stewart Milne Homes’ Eco-gardens initiative provides funding for primary schools near some of its developments in Scotland, supporting them to purchase outdoor gardening equipment, materials and plants, which are used by pupils to renovate outdoor areas.

Isobel Warnock, head of sales Scotland at Stewart Milne Homes, said: “It was an absolute delight to support the staff and pupils at East Linton Primary School and see how their hard work has enhanced their school garden space.”
