Conservation trip to Hyde Park

On Tuesday 9 November 2021, we took 68 students in Year 8 on a conservation trip to Hyde Park, along with 14 young leaders from Year 12.   We walked from MBS to the conservation area in Hyde Park, through Lancaster Gate, near to the Peter Pan statue past the Italian Gardens. The boys took part in eight activities throughout the day, all focused on conserving the natural environment in Hyde Park. These activities included bramble bashing, tree planting, sucker pulling, dead hedging, re-wilding, soil decompaction surveys, and looking at the works of tree surgeons.   Despite being attacked by ladybirds, the day was a great success and the Year 8s and 12s did an amazing job. They even planted a Scots Pine which can last up to 700 years! We look forward to the next two conservation trips over the next two terms. A very big thank you to the four parent volunteers who gave up their time to support the pupils and to get stuck in with all activities.
