Dalston pupils plant the seeds of 2012 Olympic Games
Green-fingered schoolchildren got gardening this week in preparation for the 2012 Olympic Games.
Year three children at Colvestone Primary School in Colvestone Crescent, Dalston, planted flower beds on Thursday (January 21) that will decorate the roof of the Olympic Park media centre in Hackney Wick.
Colvestone was the only school in the borough chosen to help with the project.
The children must now tend to the plants as the Games approach and report back on their work in 2012.
Headteacher Caroline King said: “They feel like they are creating part of the legacy, they are really excited.
