March News!

Filed under: Uncategorized — sthomas at 8:57 pm on Wednesday, March 6, 2013

Due to Olivia we have not been quite as busy as normal but since our wonderful production is over we have turned our attention back to all things green rather than all things dramatic.

Rag Bags

This terms Rag Bag collection raised us £52 so thank you to all those who donated. We have yet to decide what we will put this towards but we will keep you posted.

Trim Trail

The installation of the new trim trail is due to start on the 11th March so we are all very excited about that. The Green Team will be meeting with the playground squad shortly to organise a rota for pupil use as we expect it to be a popular place to play.

Litter – How can you help?

The Litter and Recycling Officers are currently drawing up a new litter pick rota so expect to see the team out and about soon. So how can you help? We want to be proud of our school and show it off to its best every day so please ensure that you put all your rubbish in a bin especially those milk carton straw wrappers,  they get everywhere! Watch out the classroom  spot checks will be starting up again shortly too. The Green Team are keen to name and shame both classes and staff who don’t look after their rubbish properly…. you have been warned!!!! Of course Wilt the Gnome will be making an appearance in the best classrooms, let’s hope he makes it out of Primary 1 this year they were super stars last year and no other class  got a look in.

Climate Week

It is National Climate Week this week and the Green Team will be taking part in the National Climate Week challenge. We can’t tell  you anything about it yet as it top secret but we will bring you a report on our challenge soon. Good luck Green Team!

Kitchen Vegetable Garden

The Green Team and kitchen staff have plenty of ideas about what they would like to see grown in the kitchen garden but if you have any requests or ideas now is the time to let us know. Leave a comment on this web page or put a note in the suggestion box on the Eco board table.

Disappointing News!

I was very sad to see that  someone does not appreciate all the hard work we have put into the school  grounds and has broken our Jubilee Plum Tree. Please look after all our living things especially our fruit trees as if we are kind to them they will reward us with fruit for the kitchen staff to create wonderful puddings to enjoy at lunch time. Lets hope we can look after our remaining trees and plants.

And Finally….

Eco-week will soon be upon us. We have lots of good ideas but if you have any suggestions for activities or themes you would like to see covered during our week leave a comment or pop a note in the suggestions box.

Mrs Thomas and the Green Team
