Lilian Greenwood MP has visited Highbank Primary School where she met teachers, parents and pupils who were proud to show her the recently completed sensory garden built and funded by volunteers.
Lilian also helped pupils bury a time capusle which contained a range of items which give a snapshot of life at the school in 2013.
Pupils then gave her a tour of the new pirate ship which has been built in the school's playground.
“The parents, children, staff and other volunteers who gave up their own time to fundraise, design and build the sensory garden have created something truly special. The garden will be part of school life at Highbank for generations to come and I hope that some of the children who buried the time capsule today will be here to dig it up in 50 years time. Who knows, one of the children here today might be the Headteacher of Highbank or the MP for Nottingham South when it gets dug up.”
Pupils at Highbank have also entered this years MP's official Christmas card competion. The winning design will be professionally printed and sent to people accross Nottingham and Westminster, including Labour Party Leader, Ed Miliband.
