A “dull” secondary school garden in Kilburn has transformed into a calming sensory space for all those having a “rough day”.
Staff at St Augustine’s CE High School, in Oxford Road, have created a new teaching environment which doubles up as a “stress free zone from the hassle of learning”.
The zone is divided into woodland, vegetables and herbs and a “sunshine area” with different plants to create a “magical space”.
Special Educational Needs lead Sylwia Antczak, who spearheaded the plan, said: “Our garden is targeted at everyone who needs a calming environment, our students as well as the people in our school community, to take a break.
“We have made sure to aim our garden at people who have had a rough day, or just need a break.
