Just before February half term we applied for a grant from Sustrans so that we could put two shelters in our playground. We are hoping that it will encourage more children to walk or cycle to school because there will be somewhere to shelter when they arrive in bad weather. Children in P4 and P5 wrote some very persuasive letters and they must have been effective because Sustrans decided to give us £2,500 towards our shelters. A company called Timberline is putting up the shelters and we are hoping that they will be ready for next term. Our Parent Council has also given some money towards the shelters.
