PUPILS AND STAFF at Lamphey Primary School, with the support of Sue Mathias Sustrans Officer, PCSOs Richard Mason and Dave Henry, enjoyed a scoot, walk or cycle to school event held last Friday.
Headteacher, Mr S Thomas, explained: “It is so important that we encourage our children to remain fit and healthy, and one of the simplest methods of doing this is by walking, cycling or scooting to school. And on a sunny, warm day in Pembrokeshire there is no better way than arriving at school after a brisk walk.” Year 2 pupils recently visited Manorbier Garden Centre, where they had a wonderful morning being shown many fascinating and different plants from around the world. All of the children and staff were very grateful to Mr Wainwright for his time, and they were particularly impressed when he showed them how to extract water from a banana leaf. Miss N Teague, Year 2 Teacher, said: “This was a wonderful experience for the children and this experience has brought our them of ‘Out and About’ to life this term.” A party of children visited Margam Park on June 17 to meet Keith Towler, Children’s Commissioner for Wales. Louis and Tobyn, from Lamphey Primary School, had the opportunity to discuss the Rights of the Child and how they have impacted in the decision making processes at school. They were very impressed by the enthusiasm of Mr Towler and would like to wish him luck as his term of office, after 7 years, is coming to an end.
