Nursery on the Green mark David Attenborough’s birthday

Festivities were well underway at Nursery on the Green in Southall as children and colleagues celebrated the 98th birthday of broadcaster and biologist, David Attenborough.

At the award-winning setting on Thorncliffe Road, pre-schoolers marked the special occasion with a series of inspired activities, including making birthday cards and artwork to send to the legendary conservationist, as well as viewing short clips of his television work, including Planet Earth, as well as taking part in environmental initiatives in his honour.

Sir David Attenborough has inspired children and colleagues alike at the nursery, who are proud holders of the prestigious Green Flag with Distinction from Eco-Schools, the highest accolade in the international scheme which is given for exceptional environmental awareness and conservation practices, including creating habitats and growing vegetables.

Nursery on the Green Deputy Manager, Meera Ladva explained;

“As a pioneer and role model across the generations, Sir David’s dedication to protecting our planet has encouraged so many to take action and make a positive impact on the world. It’s never too early to instil a love and respect for the planet, and we’re thrilled to see our pre-schoolers embracing these important values at such a young age. We had a fantastic time celebrating and would like to wish David Attenborough a very happy birthday.”

Sir David Attenborough turns 98 on 8th May 2024.
