On Thursday 11th July, a fantastic team from BMW went along to the Barnsbury
Primary School in Woking to help the school progress with their Sensory Garden.
The Sensory Garden is a huge project that is designed to enhance the opportunities
for the pupils to learn outdoors and will especially help the children at the school with
learning difficulties, as Sensory Gardens are proven to provide stimulation and a
The team got stuck in straight away and helped to build raise beds for planting and
spray paint tires in all different colours, which will also be used as planters. These
raised planters are very important to the Sensory Garden as they will enable the children to plant their own flowers and watch them grow!
Louise Hammond, Deputy Head at The Barnsbury School said “The volunteers from
BMW were incredibly helpful, proactive and really wanted to support the school in
creating a Sensory Garden for the children. They were willing to get their hands dirty
and have a go at tasks they had not undertaken before, like spray painting. They
ensured they left their mark on the sensory garden and created their own specially
designed tyre (BMW colours, as seen in the photo).They also suggested where we should plant certain flowers to ensure they were successful - which was very much appreciated! Thank you so much!”
Amazing work team!! We are so proud that you are part of CMPP!
