Parent Council

Mrs Chalmers has asked us to speak at the parent council meeting on Monday at 18:30. The S3 pupils who are to attend are Christopher, Lauren and Matthew. Sophie will represent S6. This is to get funding for the plot, and to show them the work we have done so far on it. Hopefully we will be able to apply for Youth Bank grant funding through them for equipment and a polytunnel (Lauren adds we could also buy wellies and jackets). Sophie and S3s will meet up on Monday to discuss this.

Switch off Fortnight

Next week is Switch Off Fortnight, this is a partnership with EDF Energy. Switch off Fortnight is about everyone trying to save energy.

In class we are currently making posters to show all teacher and pupils around the school. We are also spreading the word on social media. Twitter – @ardacadeco

An issue in the UK is that the North Sea oil and gas is in decline. We need energy to provide us with heat and electricity and to power our vehicles.

One of the ways we can save power is by using solar power instead. The largest solar farm is in California, USA.
