“We are delighted that SUGi has chosen our school, Holy Trinity - in the heart of Chelsea - for their next rewilding project. Since I became head of Christ Church in September 2019, providing a more natural green outdoor play environment and growing opportunities for the children has been a very real priority… Many of our children have no green space at home and so learning about nature through their school experience is crucial. Giving our pupils the chance to experience the process of rewilding and to watch it thrive in their own playground is a thrilling opportunity. Furthermore, to educate the children on wildlife conservation on our doorstep and to bring together nature and community is a privilege for which we are very grateful.”

Avis Hawkins, Head Teacher – Christ Church & Holy Trinity Federation
