This week Beatlie participated in their first litter pick of the new school session and can I just say…….
I think we could be out of a job! What a fantastic improvement in the area all thanks to the local community coming together over the past year or so to make improvements to the local environment and we have noticed – WELL DONE.
As we know the problem of litter will not be eradicated and we will continue to support the school, Craigshill and beyond to do our bit to reduce the impact on the climate!
Thank you to all the staff and pupils for participating and doing their best on what turned out to be a beautiful day to tackle the litter.
We will keep you posted for the next one, meanwhile enjoy having a look at our fantastic team working hard.
But I am sure everyone will agree that they had fun with all the different gardening projects they were involved in!
We all had different jobs to do in and around the school grounds maintaining and tidying up areas to make the place look nice for all the times we will be out in the garden to enjoy the summer weather that we hope to get for a couple of weeks before the holidays.
We also took on a special community based project this year – Street Sign Planting. We wanted to take this on and be a part of the community of Craigshill who are coming together to make improvements within the local environment. The staff and children have done an excellent job and I hope you are able to enjoy the blooms when they come out over the coming weeks.
We have all had a fabulous day celebrating World Bee Day in our own Beatlie way!
You will see from the film all the lovely interesting & interactive activities we have enjoyed bringing lots of smiles to our faces.
We hope you have had fun having a go at the bee quiz to see what type of bee you are and that you will support the cause for bees in our country by providing bee friendly environments where you can.
Next week we will be participating in the UK National Children’s Gardening Week so we will be continuing the theme of creating bee friendly environments as well as lots of other exciting project ideas – so come back next week to see what we have been up to.
Beatlie School is participating in this years Wriggly Litter Less Campaign.
We have been awarded a grant which we put to good use and bought a ‘handy cart’ with the grant – this can be used by any of the children to help when out and about in the community when participating in litter picks.
In order to achieve the second part of the grant, we need to carry out 4 litter picks between now and the end of April.
We made a great start and everyone in the school made great efforts to clean the local environment of litter!
