Thanks for your support.
On 18th May children from our school went to Parkfield Primary School in Middleton to meet Nadiya Hussain, winner of BBC TV's 'The Great British Bake-Off' for the presentation of awards following the recycle4schools scheme earlier this year.
Parkfield were judged the winning school as their ratio of pledges to pupils on roll was greatest, but our school had the highest number of pledges, a magnificent 2,734. Thank you to all who helped to raise awareness of recycling in Rochdale.
We did have some winners however; Ollie Burgess in Y2 had the highest number of any individual from any school, so received a 1st place award, and Jayden Parr in Reception came 3rd.
The slideshow below has pictures of our children ( the top ten in our school ) with Nadiya, along with some from other schools who were among the highest individual pledge getters!
A special well-done and 'Thank You' to Mrs Nixon, our own Eco-Warrior, who organised the scheme in our school.
Dance Festival 2016
