Green-fingered students have shown their outdoor skills as they created a special garden.

Acle Academy, part of the Wensum Trust, have worked alongside the Papillon Project to offer students the opportunity to take part in creating a school garden.

City Academy also benefitted from the project and added seven chickens and three turkeys to their allotment.

Year 7 and 8 students volunteered in designing the space, as well as the clean up and digging. 

Isaac Kennedy, instructor of hospitality and catering at Acle Academy said: “Our goal for our school garden is to create a functional space, which can be used by students and teachers alike.
