A dedicated space filled with Japanese ornaments and a waterfall will offer a calm environment for pupils to enjoy.
On Friday, July 7, the deputy mayor of Havering Dilip Patel attended the grand opening of the new Zen garden at Ravensbourne School, Neave Crescent, Harold Hill.
Yellow class teacher, Poupak Masoudi took on the project after she saw the potential of an unused area on school premises, and created a Japanese inspired garden.
“It’s a great additional space to the school where children can relax and enjoy,” she said.
“It is an environment based on calmness and joy.”
The garden is a testament to the commitment staff have shown in catering to the requirements of special needs youngsters.
“Our school provides a safe and caring environment for all the pupils,” she added.
The garden was funded by the PTA, The Sikh Relief and the Romford Rotary Club.
