As a school we are trying to be mindful of the amount of paper we use. Last week we had a day where we could not use the photocopier.... saving lots of paper in the office. We also have a scrap box in our room for all scraps of paper and we can use these scraps in Art, etc.
We are after our long Easter holidays and have an action packed last term ahead. we have Communion, swimming, football, music, school tours, Action week and much more to look foward to.
