Sighthill Primary School Farm Pupils Win Gold At Royal Caledonian Spring Show Schools Competition

May 15, 2023

We are delighted that pupils attending Sighthill Primary School Farm had their hard work growing daffodils recognised at the Royal Calendonian Horticultural Society’s Spring Show Schools Competition.

With support from School Farm Leader, Shona, in November 2022 P6 & 7 pupils planted daffodils in preparation for The RCHS Spring Show Schools Competition which which took place at Saughton Park on 1st-2nd April 2023. They plunged their bulbs under a bed of leaves over the winter and uncovered them in February 2023, making sure to keep turning the bulbs so the whole pot faced the sun. They then selected their best blooms for the competition, and were delighted to be awarded Gold by the judges!
