Therapeutic Garden Information

A group of teachers and pupils have been working hard to create a Therapeutic Garden in the grounds of Mintlaw Academy. Featuring winding paths leading to different areas, a reflective shelter, sensory flowers and plants, bird feeders, water features and other eco additions, the garden will be a long term project that will evolve over time. It will function as an education resource, involving pupils in its progress which will help them develop skills for life and employment and earn additional qualifications such as ASDAN, John Muir Award, Personal Achievement awards and many more! It will also serve a wider purpose, as an outdoor learning space for all classes, teambuilding area for staff and pupils, gardens for pupils to work on, development of eco projects and space to showcase projects.

Finally the creation and completion of the garden will facilitate a meaningful interdisciplinary project, engaging pupils, staff, local businesses, parents and community members, ultimately providing an additional resource in the learning and teaching of pupils in our area.

If you would like to be involved or hear more about the project please contact Mrs T Ross or Mrs A McKeown at Mintlaw Academy, 01771 622994.
