One of our Primary 1, soon to be Primary 2 pupils displays his gardening skills. 

His Sunflower has gone from 17inches on the 21st June, to 24inches on 8th July, then reaching 37inches on 25th July and today 10th August has reached an amazing 43 inches, and I do believe I can see a flower at the top. Today 21st August we have reached 49 inches. Our beautiful yellow Sunflower has appeared today 28th August at 51inches high .  What an achievement.
