PROJECT PURPLE

This year Ashford Oaks year 6 pupils are continuing on with the award winning Project Purple community scheme.  The children of Charing and Pluckley classes will be progressing the fantastic work carried out last year.  Project Purple will again be run on Tuesdays after school where each week groups of 8 children will put their plans into action.

 

Ashford Borough Council kindly donated an area of un-used grass between Beaver Lane and Crownfield Road.  Working in partnership with staff from the Aspire community group and Kent Wildlife Trust, Ashford Oaks children have made it a welcoming place where residents of the area now come to socialise.

 

Project Purple was shortlisted by Ashford Borough Council for a Kent-wide community excellence award.  We fought off stiff competition to WIN!!!

Project Purple helps keep me out of trouble and I can improve where I live.

Project Purple makes me realise how

                              important the environment is

This year, our ‘new and improved best ever’ Project Purple has big plans to further develop the site and to make the school more eco-friendly as a wildlife habitat.  The children have already:

 

  • Tended the flower planters at Crownfield.
  • Managed the area to prevent litter and broken glass, which was previously a problem before Project Purple.
  • Constructed more benches for people to sit and come together.
  • Constructed a set of small goal posts as part of a play area.

Our children's hardwork rewarded as they won the Kent Housing Group Excellence Award 2015 against stiff compeition.

The children have already started making another video to showcase the work done so far and their plans for the future – SO WATCH THIS SPACE!
