The Nemo Class Garden at Thomas A'Becket Infant School

Worthing pupils create glorious garden as a lockdown legacy

A glorious garden is the lockdown legacy created by a group of Worthing schoolchildren. Children who have been attending Thomas A’Becket Infant School regularly since March have been working hard on their garden, caring for the plants and tending their crop.

The Nemo Class Garden was the brainchild of Miss Katie Burling, who has worked with the children full time since lockdown started. Her vision was created by the children, thanks to parents and staff donating plants, canes and pots. Miss Burling said: “The Nemo children have taken complete ownership of caring for the garden, which will stay on the playground as a lockdown legacy. Everything has been recycled and re-used and the Nemos are very excited to have spotted their first tomatoes.”
