Mary Mackay (Erin in P1’s mum) is currently trying to put together a list of parent volunteers so we can open the garden at lunch time and get the children more actively involved in it. We had lunch time openings last term and these were very successful and enjoyed both by the pupils and volunteers. It was lovely to see children of different ages working together and supporting each other alongside members of the community.
If you feel you, or someone you know, could give up 30 minutes at lunch time every now and again to help out please could you get in touch. You could either contact Mary directly if you see her in the school playground or leave your name at the school office and we will pass it on to her.
It would be great if we could get this up and running as soon as possible so we can make the most of our garden area.
Fingers crossed we get a few volunteers!
