Exam leave is now officially over, and while there are still exams going on, the eco committee will resume meetings on Thursday 7th June. Any new members are welcomed from all year groups, but if you are S1 to S3 there is also an eco club for these year groups specifically.
Lets go for green!
Our school library has a new resident, a spider plant! Mrs Vauhnman ran a competition to name the little thing, and Rachel Skimming – one of our members, I am proud to say – won. The spider plant is called Peter Planter, (after Peter Parker, Spiderman), and this month they are reading the Spiderman comics.
Since the Skills Academy has been so busy with the allotment, a lot has got done! The beds are filled, we have peas, potatoes and squash planted and more potatoes to be put in beds. Also thank you to the lady in the plot across from us (I think its plot 19?) who helped fill our raised beds full of soil – toiling work in the hot weather!
Last week, as part of the Skills Academy programme, pupils explored their local environment including the Stanley Burn and South Beach.
They also helped to plant trees for the Three Towns Growers and made huge progress on the school allotment, filling our raised beds and building a bug hotel.
A big thanks to our sponsor Green Home Systems (Energy/Utility).
