Ysgol Y Gogarth Celebrates New Community Garden

We proudly unveiled our new Community Garden today, a vibrant green space that has been a labour of love for students, staff, and families alike. The garden, now teeming with colourful flowers and a variety of fruit and vegetables, stands as a testament to the hard work and dedication of the entire school community.



The garden not only enhances the school's environment but also serves as a practical educational tool. Students will have the opportunity to learn about gardening, sustainability, and the importance of caring for nature. In the future, we hope our community garden can also be a food-growing hub, perhaps helping feed those who are less well off. Additionally, it could serve as a sensory or wellbeing garden that offers a place of respite, relaxation, and reflection.



“We couldn’t be more thrilled with how the garden has turned out, It’s a beautiful addition to our school and a wonderful example of what we can achieve when we come together as a community. We are incredibly grateful to everyone who took time out of their day to help make this dream a reality.” Angharad Williams, FaCE.


We are pleased to announce that Dosbarth Glaslyn won the class garden award, recognising their outstanding contribution to this wonderful project.


The garden also features a memorial picnic bench dedicated in memory of our late school governor, Mr. David Rowley, who passed away last year. This bench serves as a touching tribute to his contributions and presence within the school community. His family, friends, and members of The Llandudno Lions Club attended the opening ceremony.



Special thanks go to Krysia Hargest and Angharad Williams, whose leadership and tireless efforts were instrumental in the project’s success. Their guidance, along with the collective effort of the Eco Council, various classes, and numerous volunteers, transformed an empty space into a thriving garden.


We are also immensely grateful to B&Q for their generous donation of plants and bark, which have added so much beauty and vitality to our garden. Additionally, our thanks go to the CCBC, Community Rail Partnership, in collaboration with Transport for Wales, and to the local resident whose generous donation provided funding to bring our vision of the garden to life. Your support laid the foundation for this wonderful project. Thank you all for your generosity and support.
