Parental Support

School Pond: Help Please

We are certainly blessed at Hardwick site with some very generous parents who have already donated a number of items to help establish our club. This means we now have enough tools, watering cans, hoses, gloves, bird seed and fat balls to begin this new year efficiently and we are very grateful for this support. Money that has been kindly donated is being used to top up our on-going need for supplies and to begin developing the pond which the club has taken on from Autumn 2019. If anyone would like to help develop our pond, we ideally need the following plants:

  • Water Lillies
  • Rushes e.g. Bull Rushes
  • Creeping Jenny
  • Fritillaria
  • Willow Herb
  • Mare's Tail
  • Purple Loose-strife


School Hedgehogs: Help Please

Later this Autumn term, as part of our hedgehog rehabilitation programme, we have 4 new hoglets arriving who were recently found in a digger. We are very excited about these new arrivals and the club will take care of these hoglets, but they will need feeding and so any donations would be very welcome. Hedgehogs can't eat fish, milk or bread but they can eat cat food (not fish). The best flavour is chicken in jelly (not gravy), so if anyone could donate any food it would be a great help to us. They also eat cat biscuits (not fish). We also need clean straw as bedding if anyone can provide this.

School Fish: Help Please

Our classroom fish tank needs updating, as whilst the skull with now only one eye is somewhat authentic alongside the shipwreck, children are commenting that their fish 'habitat and toys' are looking tired. If anyone can donate any plastic plants and/or tank ornaments we would be very grateful. Children love their fish (Marbles and Tango) and don't like to think of them living in a tank without a better view.
