"Heronswood Primary came here for a school visit today. We had a fantastic day learning more about the environment and taking a closer look at what lives in the pond, trees and flowers. The staff were really helpful and gave us lots of information to make the day fun and exciting whilst still learning! Thanks for a great day :)" Review From Helen Mikolajczyk 14/07/2014
