Fam­ily eco day at school

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Uk&world Update -

PUPILS at a city school put down their books for a day and spent time work­ing on eco-projects.

Farcet Pri­mary School young­sters joined forces with the Fam­ily Learn­ing Or­gan­i­sa­tion for Make a Dif­fer­ence Day, which en­cour­ages fam­i­lies to work to­gether on projects to de­velop the school grounds.

The event was at­tended by par­ents and grand­par­ents, who helped pupils cre­ate wil­low struc­tures with wil­lowweav­ing ex­perts.

The struc­tures form part of an eco­log­i­cal area in the school grounds known as the ‘Se­cret Gar­den.’ The chil­dren also put in new plants, sketched with char­coal and crafted dream­catch­ers.

As­sis­tant head­teacher Nicky Boyle said: “We’re very pleased with the huge sup­port re­ceived and the num­ber of fam­i­lies that at­tended.”
