Saints South West Football Sessions

This term Saints South West have been working with all of the children on developing their football skills.  To celebrate the learning that had taken place, an inter-house football tournament was held for all of the children.

Recycling workshops

Demelza, an Education officer from the Devon Waste team visited St Mary’s to help the school to reduce waste, reuse and recycle more.  She ran workshops in each class to help get everyone thinking about what else they could do to improve the recycling that takes place in school.  This term we have started collecting old pens to recycle and the plastic milk cartons from lunchtime which are now being recycled each day.
