On Friday (12/5/17) a group of dedicated helpers came from Caledonian Bottlers to Hillside School and spent all day working really hard to get our garden looking fantastic for the summer.
We really appreciate the time and effort that went in to painting, weeding, trimming shrubs and even making a wheelchair friendly planting station.
Fingers crossed we get the good weather back soon to make the most of it!
Last week, everyone at Hillside had a super time hearing about and trying out different types of work with help from family and friends from nearby businesses.
We had visitors to teach us how to cook, be active and safe to name a few.
Children and young people learned about the fire service, police work and even had a pamper afternoon to relax!
