CARROG SCHOOL ACTIVITIES

School children at Aberdunna Quarry

The junior children thoroughly enjoyed a visit to Aberdunna Limestone Quarry which had been sponsored by Llangollen Rotary Club. During their day they had a complete tour of the quarry workings, gained hands-on experience of crushing different types of rock and went fossil hunting. One highlight of the day was the chance to sit in the bucket of an enormous JCB rock shovel!

The children have many events planned for the year and all of them will be taking part in the Carrog Tsunami Disaster Fund Concert on Friday 4th. March. At the moment they are filling milk bottles with 1p, 2p, and 5p coins for this cause so if you have any of these to spare please pass them on to the children.

The After School Club has received a grant of £1,564 from the New Opportunities Fund which will be used to purchase more equipment for club use. Dawn Boydell and Sue Hilton are also busy organising craft activities for children attending the club which meets every day other than Thursday.

The PTA Attic Sale was well supported and raised the sum of £118.

And for all of us (of all ages!) who keep losing things, Molly Bourne wrote the poem on the next page whilst searching for the string that she had lost while completing her model.
