Welcome Humphrey the Hedgehog!

Debbie from T.A.C.T brought us a hedgehog for our Wild Garden. We called him Humphrey. 


Primary Six visited Tesco in  Banbridge. David took us on a tour of the store. He showed us ways in which Tesco are trying to reduce their Carbon Footprint.

See some pictures below.

How do you travel to school?


Our target is over 1000 batteries by June 2011!

Well done to everyone. Keep up the good work.
