On Monday the 9th September P4/5 got a visit from the navy. They came to help redo the pond. They arrived in at Port Ellen pier that morning so they had sailed over on a navy ship. The pond was NOT! in good shape at the time but, after the Navy came, the pond is looking in ship shape! They chopped down some trees to get wood. They dug it into layers.
The Navy were doing all the digging but p4/5 were helping to take the stones out. They were very excited to help, and had fun. Class pupil Joe Hamilton said that his favourite part was when they took photos with the navy.
