Suzanne, P4/5 class teacher has so much going on to improve two areas of the school grounds for pollinators and pupils like. The local Community Payback team are putting in a path to give pupils a dry route into their new raised beds.The materials for the raised beds have been provided by several local businesses with support from Highland Council. Trees from the Woodland Trust have arrived and will be planted next week, these will help greatly to provide shelter for wildlife and the children - Caithness is a windy place! Hopefully in April we can begin to get out into more of the school grounds and get to know our pollinators better. Photos to follow!

Children at After School Club have begun to decorate some of the border pebbles and stones of what will be a new pollinator friendly bed just outside the club building. Having read the packets to see what insects might be attracted to our plants we have so far painted ladybirds, bees and butterflies with more to follow. PS how to keep four children busy for ages ...... ask them to wash the stones for you to see if they can find a magic pebble!

Wild Garden Club have found the first shoots emerging in our school grounds - crocus have popped out just in time for a Siberian chill! Club members helped to identify areas that might need some careful footwork over the next few weeks and put up signs to both warn people to look where they are going and let them know what they might squish if they don't. We used a picture called 'Tread Lightly' by artist Madeline Kloepper who kindly said we could use it in and around school for Polli:Nation Project posters.
