Green Schools: As part of the Green Schools initiative on Travel, over 50 children from First to Sixth Class took part in Scoot on Wednesday when they met at the New Field in Clarina and travelled to school by scooter. Thanks to Ms Keyes, Green Schools Coordinator, who organised this and to the many teachers who came early to school to act as stewards along the route.
