Keep Scotland Beautiful 'Hero of the Month' Award for Glaitness School

This month we had a lovely surprise when the whole school was nominated and won the national Keep Scotland Beautiful 'Hero of the Month Award' for our Pick Up Three Pieces work. Here is the Mission Explore group who lead the Pick Up Three Pieces initiative and help organise for Bag the Bruck at our school with the award.

New litter pickers

We are getting ready for Bag the Bruck 2016. We have new litter pickers - they are strong and really grippy. They are the right length for us too. We hope everyone looks after them and they last a long time. We will use them all year on our class walks and in our playground to Pick Up Three Pieces.

We thought we should try them out in the playground. A lot of litter was stuck in the hedge from Pickaquoy Road. We had to stop before we got it all but we have made a difference already. 
Please Pick Up Three Pieces when you are out and about - this will stop it going into the sea and harming wildlife.

Some more images from Monday!

 We all had a go at trying to make a spark with the fire steels.  It required a little bit of skill!

Everyone worked well to move our pallets into position.  Keep an eye out for how we plan to use the space we have created.
