Green School News

This week members of the Green Schools Committee have been dusting down their tools and gloves in preparation for Spring. They have installed a bird feeder made from up-cycled tyres and wood. It is located near the school notice board on the right on the grass. They have made birdseed and lard balls to help sustain the local birds during this cold spell. The feeders are very low down and that’s OK given the risk of cats and dogs being nearby is practically nil. If you are setting up bird feeders at home in gardens it’s important to have them at more of a height. This is to avoid putting the birds at risk of being hunted and attacked while eating. The committee members also undertook a general Spring clean of the school entrance. Furthermore they assisted with the installation of some rain boots repurposed as planters onto the green fencing by the bike shelter. Their efforts are gratefully appreciated and have really brightened up the area.
Well done to all involved.
