First and foremost it has been a great trip and all the pupils who went behaved perfectly and were a credit to the Joseph Rowntree School. The first day was a long one, having arrived at school for a midnight departure. Once we arrived in Iceland at 11:30 am a very busy day awaited us.
The Joseph Rowntree School had another successful day at the North Yorkshire School Games Panathlon finals.
Year 8 have been developing the school garden to support pollinator species. Students studied different strategies for improving pollinator populations such as building insect hotels, introducing flowering plants and reducing the use of pesticide chemicals. We then purchased all the materials using a generous grant provided by Polli:Nation, a heritage lottery funded biodiversity and education project. On project day everyone worked exceptionally hard throughout by pulling up weeds and planting shrubbery to attract the bees.
