A primary school in Park Street is making the most of the community spirit amid coronavirus and even their chickens have got in on the action.

On Monday, March 23, the children of critical workers at Park Street School participated in forest school.They made campfires where they warmed marshmallows and made hot chocolate. Pupils then created ‘jet skis’ using tyres and robes.

Ffion Thomas English lead said: “Positivity is spreading.

“The school chickens have got involved and have started laying eggs which we also donated to the local community.”

Lunches are being delivered and collected to those who need them and continuing to provide lunches for those who can come and collect it with vouchers being sent to vulnerable families from further away.
