On Tuesday 17th February, S1-S3 and those who have chosen Spanish in S4 will watch a play performed by Onatti productions in Spanish. This will allow pupils to practise their listening skills in Spanish, and follow the story of Raquel and Oscar, a brother and sister who enjoy annoying each other!
The School has received a letter from Bronah Byrne, Environmental Health Officer with South Lanarkshire Council:
I am writing to ask for your support with a campaign we are running during January, February and March which will target unnecessary engine idling around schools. We are now reaching that time of year when there is greater temptation at school pick up times to keep the engine running due to the cold temperatures. Such activities can however negatively impact the quality of air – the air our children have to breathe in.
Children are more vulnerable to air pollution because they breathe 50% more air per pound of body weight than adults. Engine idling occurs in schools everyday when children are dropped off and picked up and this coincides with the time children will be concentrated in these areas.
To target these 'hot spots' of pollution, officers from South Lanarkshire Council will be undertaking patrols during the winter months. Vehicle idling unnecessarily is an offence. Our officers will warn any driver found to idle their vehicle unnecessarily and if the driver fails to turn the engine off they may be issued with a £20 fixed penalty notice. The officers will also distribute information and educate drivers about the harmful effects of engine idling.
