Wednesday 27th November: We had a very busy day today with lots of visitors. In the morning Martin Rickard came to give P6 their first aid test - they all passed - well done! When they had finished, Martin showed us a polar bear skull that he had been given when he was in Greenland.
After piece, Andy and Amy came to sing with us. We had good fun doing all the warm up exercises and then we learned some new songs. Andy took some pictures so we will put them up when he sends them to us.
This was funded by YMI through the Scottish Arts Council.
Mary Leask and Anona Hughson came for lunch and to talk about the waste audit that they had done for the school. We could still save some resources but they were very pleased with us and said we had tried hard to be careful with our resources and be good reusers and recyclers. They were very pleased about how little food waste we produce and said we have the lowest amount of food waste of any school in Shetland. Thank you Elsie for giving us such good dinners!
