Dear Parents and Carers
Please support our School Vegetable Growing!
This Thursday morning (and after school if any left) please come prepared with your bag together with some money to donate for some of our school grown vegetables. We have potatoes, carrots, onions and beetroot. Normally we use most of our vegetables into soup as part of our harvest celebrations. However due to restrictions around staying within our bubbles, it isn’t practical to make and serve soup to the whole primary school s we would normally do this also with High School help. On Thursday morning, the vegetables will be laid out on a table and trolley in the circular tar area and (inside the pedestrian access from Haugh Road.) People can help themselves to however much they want and are asked to put their donations in the honesty box (tub.) First come, first served. The potatoes taste nice but are perhaps a little late for treating as ‘new’ but would be better mashed.
Two Outdoor Challenges
Over the remaining weeks of school, why not have a go at one of these two challenges. Please send any photos of your activities by Tuesday 30th June. Thank you

2: One Planet Picnic
As an end of term treat, why not plan a socially distanced ‘One Planet Picnic’:
What is a One Planet Picnic? What is different about a One Planet Picnic?
- It’s a picnic that is good for you and good for the planet. That means: Choose as many ingredients as you can that are local and seasonal, organically grown or ethically traded.
- Reduce food waste and packaging waste.
Why hold a One Planet Picnic? There are many reasons. Here are some we can think of:
- It’s a fun way to get to know some of the great foods and places local to you. Your money goes into the local economy, helping local people and businesses.
- You will begin to recognise and enjoy foods that are better for the environment. You will reduce packaging and food waste. You can build relationships with friends, family, colleagues and neighbours.
If you would like more background information from Eco Schools, you can click on the link below for more information. However, remember to carry out your picnic according to the most recent guidance from the Scottish Government in relation to which Phase of the Route map we are in at the time of your picnic.
Please do send a photograph of your picnic!
