Sheffield Girls' Year 12 students successfully run 'Flowers Around the Globe' event

Amidst a backdrop of sunshine and blooming magnolia blossoms, The Botanical Gardens became a vibrant hub of cultural celebration on Sunday 24th March with the fantastic ‘Flowers Around the Globe’ event hosted by our Year 12 students. 

Families reveled in the festivities as our pupils showcased their event planning prowess, bringing to life a spectacular celebration of diversity and nature.

Over the past eight months, these enterprising students have worked as a cohesive unit, meticulously crafting, planning, and executing their vision. Their hard work culminated in an array of stalls, each dedicated to celebrating the cultural heritage of both the gardens and the Sheffield community.

From the Iranian stall, attendees had the opportunity to delve into the intricacies of the Iranian New Year while savouring delectable traditional cuisines. Meanwhile, at the Chinese stall, children immersed themselves in the art of crafting paper dragons and origami flowers, adding splashes of colour to the event. The Latin American stall garnered much attention with its display of traditional recipe cards, leaving visitors of all ages adorned with vibrant stickers.

The United Kingdom stall offered a delightful treasure hunt, enticing young explorers to scour the grounds in search of hidden treasures. Furthermore, the South African and Mediterranean stalls captivated attendees with their immersive cultural experiences, offering crafts and colouring activities that illuminated the rich tapestry of their respective heritages.

This event stands as a testament to the power of collaboration, creativity, and cultural exchange, reaffirming the Botanical Gardens' position as not only a sanctuary of nature but also a vibrant tapestry of human connection.

Congratulations to everyone involved.
