In Green News our Biodiversity theme continues through the winter. Our Green Flag application must be submitted by March 21st, 2014. Recently boys from several classes completed our autumn biodiversity audit.  They acted as nature detectives for a day and even though our garden is close to a busy, polluted road many different species of bugs, plants, flowers and trees were on view. Some boys used magnifying glasses and were lucky enough to find ants and even a centipede.

In January we will do a similar winter audit followed by a spring audit in February – March. It’s important that the boys keep up this detective work during the Christmas holidays. So boys … get out to your gardens and parks (regardless of weather conditions) and write down the names of all birds and trees you notice as well as any unusual visitors. Don’t forget to reuse/recycle your Christmas waste and remember to put out some food for birds in your garden. Like us, they also need a Christmas feast!!!

Wishing you all a Happy & a Green Christmas from Joey’s Green Team
