Well done to all our fantastic readers and to Hunters for their very generous contribution to our school library.

School Garden Clean Up

This Saturday 24th September Ms Gilligan, our Green Schools co-ordinator is looking for volunteers to help out in the school garden. Ms Gilligan has great plans to revitalise our school garden and to develop a sensory garden in this, our 50th year.

She needs PARENT POWER with willing gloved hands and wellies/boots and the following tools:

·         Strong gloves

·         A number of wheelbarrows

·         Pruning saws

·         Lobbers

·         Garden shears

·         Secateurs

·         Rakes – leaf rakes and normal rakes

·         Spades

(Please label/tag your tools so that you are bringing your own tools home with you afterwards.)

The garden will be open from 9:30pm-1:30pm on Saturday. Please drop in at any stage and stay for as long as you are able.

With the presence of so many sharp and potentially dangerous tools it would be inadvisable to bring children along on this venture.
