Our 4th, 5th and 6th class students created bird feeders out of milk bottles. Well done to our students for following the Green Schools code by reusing recyclable materials. We’ve even had a few birds visiting their new houses already!
Last week was Active Schools’ week in Feakle NS. There were very busy students in 4th, 5th and 6th class with swimming, golf, Irish dancing, obstacle courses and much much more going on!
A lot of our students also painted rocks and hid them around the village. Have you found any yet?
Some of our 4th, 5th and 6th class students have been creating their own take of Vincent Van Gogh’s Sunflowers. Take a look!
One of our students even created an Oxeye Daisies version. Well done Tom!
