Mary’s Garden

As we arrived back in school this September we were all thrilled to see our new sensory garden in full bloom and the new sensory play areas ready to go.

It gives us great joy to name our beautiful garden after our wonderful secretary, Mary Tully, may she rest in eternal peace.

It is amazing to see all of the staff and children enjoying the new spaces. This area is a fabulous addition to our lovely school and will benefit our school community for years to come.

Sincere thanks to all who helped to make it a reality.

Marine life in Roxboro NS!

We recently had Martina Butler from Heritage in schools visit our school to talk to us about Marine Environment. She spent three days in our school. On the first day she brought live samples from the ocean. We got to look at all different types of seaweed and sea creatures. There were crabs, sea urchins, sea kelp and a variety of other creatures.
She spent the other two days doing hour long workshops in each class. She showed a slide show on how pollution effects marine life. We saw some very upsetting pictures of some sea animals hurt or some that even died as a result of plastic in our oceans.
Martina reminded us how important it is to reuse and recycle so that our planet survives for future generations.
