Recycling Crisp Packets

At Lochardil , we are “Wise About Waste”. We are supporting the latest recycling initiative. Boxes will be in the playground from next week for our crisp packets.

“Snack firm Walkers has announced a recycling scheme. From December, snack fans will be able to post used bags – in envelopes, for free – directly to a recycling company. It will involve packets being turned into plastic items such as benches, watering cans and plant pots by recycling firm TerraCycle.  Any brand of crisp packets – not just Walkers – will be accepted. People will be encouraged to drop off their packets at one of hundreds of “public access collection points” around the country.”

Shoeshare and UNIKIDS

Thank you for all the shoes we have already received as part of our Shoeshare Campaign to support UNICEF. Our UNIKIDS group emptied the box and made sure the shoes were paired together. Keep your donations of old shoes coming in please. We take them to Clarks’ shoe shop and then money is given to UNICEF to help provide a better education for children around the world.

What a great start! Thank you.

P2 French

You may have noticed that we have been learning to say” How are you?” in French. We had a lovely teacher from France, called Natalie, visit our class today and she taught the children the French words for some of the colours we were using in our art lesson. Here is a photo of us all together with our French puppet Gabrielle.

Today we were learning about the Hindu celebration of Diwali. They enjoyed learning about the Rangoli patterns that Hindu’s make on their doorsteps and were very focused making their own using contrasting colours.

ELC- A BIG Thank You

A big thank you to Jo Traquair (Teddy’s Mum) for purchasing the ELC a new cement mixer.  She had noticed that our old one was extremely well used and had been ‘put out to pasture’ so as a lovely gesture bought us a new one for our outdoor construction area.  As you can see from the pictures, it was well received by the children (and staff) !!

Pr 7 Moy Windfarm Visit 6.11.18

Thank you again to ENECO and Mr Amores for our Moy WIndfarm experience today. We had super weather up on site. We met Ewan and Ian who help to manage the site and take care of the ecology around the windfarm. We watched and listened as the turbine was switched on and off. They are huge!

We appreciated the support of our parent helpers.
