THE HEADTEACHER of Marpool School has spoken of her delight after a new sensory garden was opened.

Mrs Patterson said the new garden, which was opened last Friday, September 25, would play a key part in the curriculum, particularly English and science.

The Exmouth Raleigh Rotary helped prepare the area and Barclays donated �1000 to develop the grounds.

"It is really going to be a gem," said Mrs Patterson. "It will open up all kinds of senses to help the pupils with their studies.

"The garden will be a rich part of the science and English curriculums predominantly. The potential it has is going to be great. It gives us a rich resource to reach out to all children.
