We are truly grateful for the difference that we are making to the world. Miss Spence has especially noticed that ‘Recycling Fever’ has infected our children. As many children from all year groups are collecting rubbish on the playground, making posters (these can be seen on the website) and bringing in their items to our centre!
Finally, we are looking for a donation of a multi-tiered storage unit such as a vegetable rack with drawers or baskets to accommodate the many recycling projects in our ‘Recycling Centre’ area. If you think you have something that would work please either bring it in or speak to Miss Spence or Mrs Field.
Your school councillors and Miss Spence
