We are working very hard to get our Green Flag for 'Water' at the moment. All the activities during Water Week will be considered in our application. When all the snow melts in SMD will we have lots of extra water on the grounds! Our Water Week will be extended into next week because of school closures during the bad weather.
The children are learning about the importance of water and how we should try to use less water at home and at school by making simple changes like, turning off the tap when brushing their teeth, using a bucket instead of a hose to wash our cars. The Green School Team are very busy at school to make sure we are all 'water aware'. Watch this space for photographs coming soon showing children in action for Water Week!
