Hello and welcome to our page, here you will find the story of our miniature show garden. Happy reading!
Our school: We are a grammar school in Horncastle with approximately 800 pupils aged 11-19.
Stem Club: We are all part of a STEM club that is run by Miss Hebden. We participate in lots of different STEM based activities on a weekly basis, the most recent of which has been the great gardening challenge.
This year we were challenged with creating a War Themed Victory Garden. We did extensive research and found that the term "victory garden" was predominantly from WW2. As a result of this we decided to use the theme of an air-raid shelter and the dig for victory campaign as the basis for our project.
We also had some visitors come into school to help us out: Fiona World, an avid cook who enjoys making jam and chutneys, Cordelia McCartney, a garden designer, and our mentor Sue Stennet. We also had a lot of help from our sixth form mentors, Jess Holland and Tom Massey. We would like to thank them for all their help and support.
After we had done all of our research we wrote a design specification to make sure we included all of the important factors we had concluded from our research. We put a few design ideas together and then got to making, here are a few photos to show how we got to what you see in front of you today.
We had so much fun doing this challenge and learnt a lot. Please take a recipe book from the stand and come and see our presentation in the exhibition hall, opposite the Epic centre.
Thank you for taking the time to visit our page!
QEGS STEM club
Well done to everyone for rising to the challenge and completing your practice expedition in the Lincolnshire Wolds. Your supervisors and myself are looking forward to seeing you complete the actual expedition in the Peak District in July.
The second volume of QEGS Academia is available now. This is an academic journal designed to showcase some of the best, most interesting and thought-provoking work produced by our A level students. We hope that it provides an interesting read on a diverse range of topics. The journal is available on the school website. We have also printed a small number of copies, which are around school; they will also be distributed in the local community. If you work in a business or organisation where you think it would be interesting and beneficial to have a printed copy of the journal, please feel free to get in touch with the Main Office and they will arrange for a copy to be sent to you. Ms Macdonald and Mrs Brown.
On a wet weekend at the end of April the Silver Duke of Edinburgh Expedition set out across the Lincolnshire Wolds. They overcame all the challenges the weather bought, walking over 25 miles carrying their heavy packs and camping for two nights. They improved their teamworking skills and always had smiles, despite the weather.
