Gardening to Symbolise Eradicating Polio
On Wednesday 15 March Mike Ware and Richard Monger from Bourne End and Cookham Rotary Club came into assembly to talk to Junior Boys about the work of Rotary International around the world in the eradication of Polio from the planet.
Rotary International had donated 1200 crocus bulbs to the School during the autumn which Mrs Nott and the Gardening Club had planted. These are now emerging providing a beautiful blue/purple display. The boys were told the significance of the colour, which symbolises the colour of the dye that Rotary International place on the fingers of children they inoculate.
At the end of the visit Mike Ware presented Mr Leuzinger with a plaque to place in the garden.
The beds of crocuses can be seen at Junior Boys next to the Reception garden.
