Snowdrop Planting 06-03-2013

Pupils and teachers from the St John's Primary School and Claremont Primary School Eco Committees joined forces with members of the Alloa Community Council to plant snowdrops donated by Alloa Community Council, at the foot of the red railway bridge. We planted over 5,000 bulbs and each child got a handful to plant at home to spread the goodwill. Simon Karner chair of Alloa Community Council said "Alloa Community Council wanted to combine creating a lasting symbol of the two schools joining together to form the new Redwell School whilst improving the appearance of Alloa West. We thought snowdrops would be nice and thought it important Alloa Community Council helped promote the environment with the help of the children."

All the children had great fun helping plant the snowdrops and particularly liked finding the worms. Children from primary 1 through to primary 7 were involved. Teacher Miss Nicoll said "St.John's and Claremont Eco Committees were very excited to be invited by the Community Council to help plant snowdrops at the red bridge. The children had great fun and thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience. They learned where and how to plant the snowdrops to ensure growth and worked together, digging and planting, to get the job done. As the red bridge is one of our main routes to Redwell Primary we will all benefit from their beauty on our journeys to and from our new school!"

Alloa Community Council were pleased to help promote the community sprit whilst improving the environment and bringing young people together. We are planning a fun day in the summer.
