This Friday (18th April) the whole school is taking part in “Keep Scotland Beautiful” Big Spring Clean. We are going out and about in the village to give it a tidy up. We are proud of our village and want to do our bit to show that we are responsible citizens who care for the environment we live in. We would love to have some more parents and friends join us – if you give us a call beforehand on 860216 we can allocate you to a particular class. If not, you can just turn up at school at 11am.
Keep Scotland Beautiful have supplied us with some bright yellow tabards so you won’t miss us, and the council are supplying us with protective gloves and litter pickers.
These are the winners of the egg decorating competition organised by the Parent Council:
Morning Nursery Sam
Afternoon Nursery Amy
Well done to everyone that entered. Have a Happy Easter!
Asda and schools are trying to reduce the number of new carrier bags being used in supermarkets. We would like you to get involved. When you are shopping in Asda, you will be given a Go Green voucher every time you reuse your old bags or buy a Bag for Life. Please send these vouchers to school and we can exchange them for resources to help develop greener thinking.
We looked at all the answers we had from our survey. Here are the graphs we made on the computer.
Most people would like more parking spaces, dog mess cleaned up, more flowers and the railway station to be reopened.
Let us know what you think.
Don’t forget that the Spring Show is the last Saturday of the Easter holidays – 5th April. There are lots of classes for children so please try and enter. Full details of the classes are in our March newsletter, or you can get a schedule from the Post Office in the village.
