Crocus planting

On Thursday 9th November Stamford's Rotary Club visited school to raise awareness of their eradicate polio campaign. The class were split into three groups, each one was required to help cut and roll the turf before fertilising the soil, scattering 1000 crocus bulbs and laying the turf back down.

The children had a wonderful time and look forward to spring when the purple flowers will begin to bloom.  Lots of great questions were asked whilst planting, for example, 'Why are they all purple?' 

Purple was chosen as those children that have been immunised against polio, in one of only three countries that it still exists, have a purple dot placed on their finger so doctors know who has received the medicine.
