Sarah, if you are using wire arches, where do you intend to use the bamboos?
You don't say the age of your students, but try to ensure that most of your crops mature during term-time. It is a shame if you have to leave the garden in the summer just as you have usable crops.
The only comment I would make about metal pins (cheap in a camping shop) is that they make holes in the fleece which shortens its life considerably.
