Dylan Kelly from R7 has brilliantly brought to our attention the effects of  climate change on our planet through his artwork. Dylan has depicted how  our planet will look (on the left hand side) if we do not change the way we are living. He conveys a sense of urgency is needed by all in saving our beautiful planet from further destruction by simply saying’Sorry 2030′. A very powerful and thoughtful message to  us all………

G5- Christmas Treats

This week the boys baked some Christmas Tree Treats. A nice simple treat that can be made easily at home with just a few ingredients.

We used a chocolate spread or jam as our filling.  We all had a great time making them and an even better time eating them.
