Miss Lomax nominated Calen Ford (Year 9) into the Royal Horticultural Society School Gardeners of the Year 2019 competition as he has shown great potential with his gardening abilities and knowledge.
When we received correspondence we were thrilled to hear he had made it through as a national finalist against some very tough competition. As a finalist Calen had to produce a showreel, demonstrating his talents and horticulture knowledge. You can see the video below.
Although Calen didn’t win the title of Royal Horticultural Society Young School Gardener he was selected as winner in the 11-14 age group category. Congratulations Calen!
Everyone at Reddish Hall School is very proud of his achievement. Unfortunately, Calen wasn’t able to make it to the award ceremony at RHS Wisley in Surrey so Miss Lomax went on his behalf.
