Maria’s Garden Opens

Mid June saw the Prep School cut the ribbon on ‘Maria’s Garden’ a brand new space at the school for reflection and for the pupils to be out in nature. The Garden, including a living willow yurt a Wetland wildlife environment and the planting of 300 trees, hopes not only to be a tranquil location to remember our much missed Prep Head Maria Maslin but also to act as a key component in the Prep School’s continuing ecological development programme. Chris Brown, Marias Husband and father to Freya Maslin-Brown (who graduated from Battle Abbey School in 2020) said; ‘On behalf of Freya and I, and all our friends and family that attended the garden opening, I wanted to email in our thanks. Firstly, the gardens themselves look incredible and really are a fitting tribute to Maria – Richard Malewicz (Sustainability lead) has done an amazing job. It was a lovely occasion for us all.’ Freya and Richard cut the ribbon to formally open the garden and we are certain the space will be well loved by pupils as was Maria.
