Reminder – Rag Bag Collection Tuesday 22nd June.

The next Rag Bag collection will be on Tuesday 22nd June.

Please support this activity. Only send bags on Tuesday as we are not able to bring them into the building. There will be additional “baskets” beside the Rag Bag container in the car park.

This is a great opportunity to clear out our wardrobes for the summer.

P5 once again made the most of the good weather and headed outside to tidy up the garden and inspect the local wildlife.

  • We found some slugs.
    More wee beasties!
    Raking and collecting the newly cut grass.
    Tidying up the garden.
    Litter picking.
    Putting the weeds and grass cuttings in our composter.
    Great job boys!
    Fascinating wee bugs.

    We even named our slugs. This one is called Jimmy! 😁
