A SPECIAL memorial garden has been opened at Exeter House School in Salisbury.

The school unveiled the courtyard garden on Friday, as well as a mosaic made by pupils with the help of artist Joanna Dewfall and funded by local branches of NADFAS.

Teacher Amy Norris said: “This garden is a quiet place where we can meditate and remember those of our friends who once attended the school but since have sadly died.

“We offer an invitation for any parents of past students to come to the school to view the garden and see the memorial plaques (in the shape of balloons) that we have installed as a permanent reminder.”
