Rockmount Primary School

All Can Achieve

Rockmount Community Club

This year, we are continuing the Saturday Gardening club. However, this year we are changing the name to Rockmount Community Outdoor Club. The idea behind the change is firstly, we would like to get the school and local community together. Secondly we are hoping, that over the year we will run other sessions and not just gardening. We are looking to bring in experts in their field such as Penge Sheds to do some wood working and maybe a baker or chef to teach their craft, the possibilities are endless.


  There will be a Community Club session every month. They usually run between 10am - 12pm. Please keep an eye out for the monthly emails from the school with more details.





Christmas Crafts

Sunday 17th December 2023 - 10am - 12pm

It was lovely to see so many families on Sunday taking part in our Christmas Craft Activities. Everyone had the opportunity to take in 4 different activities. These included cooking over the campfire, decorating flower pots and planting bulbs to take home, decorating wooden decorations for the Christmas tree and decorating (and eating) Gingerbread Men.


All the children did very well and we even had parents joining in and creating their own master pieces. Thank you to the parents who helped out manning the activities, it was an amazing help.


Looking forward to the new year and developing the garden further, with even more produce grown and eaten!!


Have a great Christmas and a Happy New Year.  

Sunday 21st May (11am - 1pm)

We were lucky to have a gorgeous sunny day and we had an amazing turnout to our Community Club Day. As people arrived they prepared their jacket potato to go in the open fire. Once in the fire everyone then headed out into the playground to tidy up. We had lots of weeding, planting of seeds and trees and people were also painting the 'Friendship Bench'. An amazing amount of hard work was done and  the results around the school were totally outstanding. 

As we headed into the second part of the session people started to get their potatoes out of the fire and then chose their toppings from butter, cheese, baked beans and tuna and sweetcorn. We also had a supply of hot drinks and squash which everyone could help themselves too.

Thank you to everyone who came along to the club. I hope you enjoyed your time and we look forward to welcoming you all again on Sunday 25th June at 10am for work in the playground followed by a small BBQ. Watch out for the information leaflet and the sign up link.

Thank you to all those adults and children who came along on the wet and windy Saturday and worked so hard on the outdoor environment. We completed every single job which was amazing. Over 120 bulbs were planted along the polytunnel, the tables have been waterproofed, 3/4 of the wood chip was moved to relay the pathways in the edible garden and wildlife area and the rabbits were well and truly spoilt again.

Everyone then enjoyed making their own S'mores, drinking campfire hot chocolate and making patterns with their sparklers. A great time was had by all.

On Saturday 5th February, for a change, we had glorious weather. The sun was out and we had an amazing turn out of parents/careers and children. It was great to see so many happy, smiley faces. With so many people there to help, we managed to get so much work done. We moved the shingle to create an outdoor seating area in the wildlife garden, much weeding was done, soil was moved and used to fill up the planting bed attached to the pergola, branches were chopped back to open up the fire pit and to open up the pond area and rabbits were stroked and cuddled. Thank you so much to all the volunteers who turned up to help. NEXT DATE - 5TH MARCH 2022
