Autumn is a season of transition as the leaves turn brown and the nights grow longer. In the spirit of the season the CELT team at Bishop Grosseteste University (BGU) organised the ‘Blooming Marvellous’ event to help staff and students see opportunities for their own positive change.
Devised in partnership with BGU’s Chaplaincy team the event encouraged the BGU community to come together to celebrate positive change and growth, providing staff and students with the opportunity to plant bulbs in the University’s Peace Garden. As the seasons progress they will then be able to watch their plants grow and blossom into a beautiful display of colour whilst at the same time having the chance to reflect on how they can make changes in their own lives.
20 students and staff members from departments across the University gathered together in the Peace Garden and Claire Thomson, Head of the Centre for Enhancement and Learning in Teaching (CELT), was delighted to see the event bring the BGU community together for such an uplifting afternoon:
“It was a fantastic day to be enjoying the outdoors with staff and students working together under a shining sun to plant a range of bulbs in the border of the Peace Garden which over the next few months will transform it into a beautiful tranquil place to relax.
“The bulbs and flowerbeds that they have prepared will become an array of colour in the Spring as a symbol of growth, transition and hope. The event was thoroughly enjoyed by all those who attended.”
You can keep up to date with all the upcoming events designed to support and inspire our students and staff on our news and events pages.
