S3 Science classes have been investigating the link between climate and plant growth, with fantastic results!
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.
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).
