A BIG THANK YOU TO ALL OUR PARTNERS
Royal Bank of Scotland held a Book Swap in the bank for a month. The money from donations was given to the school and was used to buy shrubs and plants for our playground
Lloyds Bank have made significant improvements to our playground and have volunteered their services for 2017 to maintain the newly planted shrubs and bushes and the Eco Team will come up with suggestions as to how best they can support us in the year ahead.
Local Council As part of the Clean, Green Hutchison Campaign, our local Green Councillor has asked for the school to continue its involvement in a variety of projects such as bulb and seed planting and by helping the community tackle its litter problem.
Parents and community members continue to be involved in regular Gardening Days, helping with classes doing outdoor work for the community, and by sharing their many skills and talents to help us become an even more ECO friendly school.
Sainsburys donated seeds and compost to help us improve our school grounds.
The Corn Exchange gave us £500 to buy plants and planters.
