Photo supplied. Principal Mr. White with parent and student volunteers move mulch to cover paths in the outdoor classrooms behind the school as part of a larger project to enhance the outdoor space. Parents and staff at the school have been working on a plan to create more places of interest in the school outdoor areas. A working bee took place on September 18th and approximately 20 volunteers took part in clean up, mulching and path making. Another work bee is planned for November when more mulch will be spread. The Millbrook Farm and Pet Supply has donated $2,000 towards this effort generated through bottle return donations collected during the month of October.
Trout Unlimited kindly offered to plant more trees Millbrook South Cavan Public School. They purchased trees from Richardson tree farm at a discounted price. We needed some help to get the trees planted, so we called Town and Country. It takes a lot of help to plant the trees. So a former student, Alec Dart, donated supplies and volunteered his time. It was fun for the younger students to see the loader truck moving about and witness the planting of the trees!

As a Millbrook South Cavan Public School student I was very excited to see that we got five maple trees planted around the school yard and five cedar trees were planted in the outdoor classroom. Every day now we get to enjoy seeing the trees around the school yard.
