Tree Planting

Our Eco-committee have ben busy this morning working alongside staff from Lerwick Port Authority and the Amenity Trust to plant trees in our garden.

As part of Lerwick Port Authority’s commitment to the environment they have an initiative where each year they plan approximately 20 trees to offset their paper usage.   This year they kindly asked Bell’s Brae to be part of this important initiative.  Our Eco-committee were thrilled to receive this offer and spend this morning learning about the different trees.

Huge thanks to the Lerwick Port Authority and Amenity Trust staff for supporting us.

Looking for litter

Four of our P5s pupils watched Newsround and were very interested in a report about litter.  They decided that they would try to make a difference and spent their lunchtime gathering up all the litter that had blown below the fences in our P5-7 playground.  They got a whole black bag full.

They have now asked if they can regularly look out for litter in both playgrounds.  It is great to have young people who are proactive and look after the environment.
