Rafferty says 'I love it so much because it's the best field ever!'. Sebastian says 'When the field is open I'm so so happy!'. Both boys say they have enjoyed the opal project so far. They dress up and use most things in the yard. It's much better than just running round the old yard.

Everyone always wanted to go on the trim trail but now they have bibs it's more fair and everyone gets a turn.

Anna loves the new kitchen

Loads more to do and fun activities

Here are two examples of resources we need some handy volunteers to build for us. If you think you could do this, or know someone who could, PLEASE see Miss Knox or let the school office know.

Thank you

Our OPAL project is under way. Please check this page regularly for updates and watch our school yard be transformed!

OPAL lead: Miss Knox.

We have sheds! These will be used to store and preserve our equipment. Now we need to fill them! The children will have access to these to select resources over break and lunch time.
