Maisondieu Primary School staged a very successful Eco Day earlier this month.

The whole school was involved, as well as lots of parents and friends.

The day commenced with a litter pick.

The children from the nursery to primary three section focused on cleaning up the school grounds and the orchard, while primaries four to seven headed out into the local community.

A lot of litter was collected!

The rest of the day was spent engaged in a wide range of activities.

Representatives from SCARF (Save Cash and Reduce Fuel) popped along to talk about saving energy and a representative from Angus Council spoke to the pupils about recycling and composting. A countryside ranger visited primary six pupils to help them build a mini-beast mansion.

Other weeding, digging and planting activities took place throughout the day.

Special thanks go to all the parents, grandparents and friends who popped along to help on the day.

The school received donations from local businesses.

Many thanks go to Mackie Motors, Angus Tyres, Brechin Castle and Greggs the bakers - who donated enough caramel shortbread for everyone in the school to have a piece!
