As part of stress awareness month we have handed out over 150 sunflower seeds for students to take home and grow. Gardening is a great way to help with stress and links with Etones’ 5 top tips Connect, Be Active, Take Notice, Give and Keep Learning.

Connect – The sunflower project allows students to connect and have a healthy competition between themselves

Be Active – By spending time in the garden caring for your sunflower you are looking after your physical and mental health

Take notice – Take a minute to appreciate nature and watch how your seed grows into a beautiful sunflower, you may notice yours is not yellow as sunflowers can also be red and purple!!

Give – by taking part in The Big Grow Sunflower challenge you are supporting the local community

Keep Learning – Learning about gardens and nature can be a wonderful personal journey for someone to go on.

The seeds, pots and compost were kindly donated by The Makery – Guardians of the grow charity who have arranged the Sunflower competition for all schools, nurseries and other community organisations in Nuneaton to take part in. Etone College have also arranged their own competition and invite all students and staff to share their sunflower photos by the 1st July. There will be prizes award for the biggest sunflower.
