The Art of Hedge-laying

Friday, April 26th, 2013

After learning about trees and the art of Hedge-laying last Autumn, the children of The Manor School embarked on a project to further enhance the wildlife at Bhaktivedanta Manor and the beauty of the hedgerow along the main drive.  In consultation with Donato Cinicolo, a professional hedgelayer and with the help and support of Uddhava, the head gardener, the children planted over hundred trees of  crab-apple, wild plum, wild cherry and spindle.


Over the next few months the children will be carefully observing the hedgerow for changes and monitoring the wildlife.  They will be entering into a National green competition based on their learning, both theoretical and practical throughout this activity.


Bhaktivedanta Manor is an excellent primary school with outstanding achievement in spiritual, moral, social and cultural education. It is currently accepting applications for Reception Class September 2013.  Please contact Padma at for further information or call on 01923851000 ext 241

Hertsmere School Interfaith

Children of the Manor School participated in an interfaith event held at Allum Hall in Elstree which was coordinated by the Hertsmere Forum of Faiths.  Various faith schools in the Hertsmere area performed items to illustrate their beliefs and there was food and displays as well.  The Manor School children very confidently performed a drama entitled, “The Day the Body Parts went on Strike” followed by a devotional song.  The prasadam at the display table was a clear hit, but the gopi-dots and face painting, which attracted long queues of children, was the clear winner!

Hazelwood School

A visit from Hazelwood School in Enfield to the Manor School led to a lovely interaction between the children.  In exchange the Manor School children were invited to Hazelwood in observance of Diwali and had an opportunity to perform “The Ramayana”.  The performance ended with the harmonious singing of the Hare Krishna maha mantra accompanied by classical instruments.  After a tour of Hazelwood School the children were invited on stage to answer questions about their faith, school life and beliefs.
