We are absolutely delighted with the results, it was a very successful day. Eleanor and Amalia left school at 5.30am on the day to be there in time to put together a lovely display which clearly helped with our success.
A massive well done to the Orchid Project team at school for growing such wonderful plants. We are all very proud!
