Flo’s work has been featured in the new Garden House Prospectus which was published late last year and a number of her images have been used to enhance and refresh the School website.

Fencing and Garden House School

Fencing has always been an integral part of life at Garden House, and in recent weeks several current and ex Garden House students have done exceptionally well, both at the Landsdowne Cup and at the Newham series tournament.

It is the first time Garden House has used the ballroom for the annual Garden House match, which has been held at the Lansdowne for nearly 40 years now.

Special mentions must go to Trinity deLucy Mckeeve and Cordelia Yanicelli.  Ex-Garden House girls, Katie Castillo Bernaus, Iyla Flanagan, Defne Basak and Sloane Yanicelli’s have also all done very well.  Trinity has already won 2 medals competing in the Under 12 category.

Well done to everyone involved!
