CONGRATULATIONS to our students on another excellent set of GCSE results. We are delighted that 63% of students achieved a Grade 4+ in both English and Maths. In English, 72% of students achieved a Grade 4+ with 73% achieving this in Maths. This achievement is equally impressive across the broad range of curriculum subjects that we offer. Students have worked extremely hard and been so committed to


learning. Coupled with the support of their


teachers, support staff and parents, this has provided an exceptional climate for learning at Bungay High School. We are extremely proud of the progress, which our students make, and the standards that they achieve in the five years that

they are with us. The

Governors and I would like to pass on our congratulations to

points around the town. These

devices not only help the Council to gather useful data that feeds through into general traffic planning, but they also serve to prompt drivers to observe their speed!

Finally, the Pride In Bungay monthly Litter Pick has continued to gain momentum so if you’re interested in being a part of this wonderful initiative, just come to the Council Office in Broad Street at 10am on the third Sunday of the month and you will be provided with the necessary equipment!

HARLESTON Garden Club enjoyed two enlightening talks during the summer. In July, Luci Skinner from Woottens of Wenhaston, a true plantsman’s nursery, discussed irises and their place in our gardens. In August Johnny Walkers took us through a delightfully topsy-turvy A – Z of bulbs. As for Irises Luci showed at

least one Iris for every month of the year – from the tiny Iris reticulata which blooms in January among the snowdrops and is happy in shade, to the winter flowering and evergreen irises that enliven December.

good in April. Bearded Irises bloom from May to June, and we should be planting these now, in September.


planting irises remember not to crowd them among each other or other plants, they like breeze and plenty of space. In June the Siberian crested Iris; and in July, around the edges

of ponds or other water, the Louisiana. August reveals the Japanese iris with dinner-plate size flowers; and in September our native Iris foetidissima. Woottens have 600 varieties and their astonishing range has something all through the year in the Iris department. Johnny Walker’s somewhat anarchic exploration of the world of bulbs (bulbs, tubers, rhizomes and corms) was no less astonishing.

Johnny, Dutch Irises are

who has shown daffodils for 34 years and won 29 gold medals and counting, is the son of a Dutch bulb grower with whom he ran a bulb cooperative with over 100 bulb growers. His mixed alphabet of horticultural/ common names was amusing and his commentary informative.

Pineapple plants are eucomas; snowdrops are

bluebells= scyllas and Arum Lilies are Zantadeschia!. His advice on how to plant, feed and bring on flowering bulbs included a timely Christmas tip.

To have hyacinths

flowering on time, one should keep the growing plants in the cold and the dark – then three weeks before Christmas give them the light and heat they need to release their blooms and their fragrance.

Before that it
