Where we all shine

Looking After God's World

Pupils planting trees and hedges in our Forest School.

At St Augustine's Academy, we care deeply about God's world and try our best to help it flourish and thrive.   During the last 2 years, we have worked hard, alongside the Woodland Trust and Central Bedfordshire Council, to create a wonderful Forest School.  We have received approximately £20,000 in grants to plant and irrigate dozens of trees and hedges, and over £3000 from the Jane Cart's Trust to purchase outdoor clothing for our pupils so that they can enjoy nature in all weather.  

We were delighted to be part of Dunstable's winning Britain in Bloom team, and to also have  won the Young Person's Special Project (Under 12s) at this year's Anglia in Bloom competition, for our Forest School.

The Good, Bad and Ugly Project - Year 4

Our Year 4 children took part in a project with Dunstable community representatives.  The children discussed and researched all the things that were good, bad and ugly about Dunstable and presented their findings to the Lady Mayoress, councillors and other members of the community.  They were brave, eloquent and confident, and even asked members of the community some very challenging questions.  Well done Year 4!
