Mr Eling told my class some interesting things about Bearwood and what he would like to improve. He said that there is going to be a new pool for wildlife at Lightwoods Park. Also Lightwood’s house is being repaired so we can go inside and see what’s in there. Bearwood used to be mostly farmland and houses were started to be built in the 1870’s. The first streets were Ethel and Gladys road right by our school. Bearwood school first opened in 1881.
