Library Lunchers Eco group!
Library Lunchers raised money again this year to renew fostering Quanza and Kamok, two orphaned baby elephants from The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust in Kenya. We had a cake bake and guessed the birthday of a Steiff elephant. We raised enough to foster them for a further 3 years each! Awesome!
Pupils also were made aware of the plight of elephants due to poaching for their ivory.
S3PWRB club is our S3 club for 2017-18! Tuesday lunchtimes, fortnightly
This term they are reading The Chrysalids by John Wyndham, and will be comparing it to Obernewtyn by Isobelle Carmody- another dystopia. We tried to use telepathy in one meeting to see if it was actually possible... This genre is particularly interesting in view of Worldwide current events.
