The same can be said for friendships. Friendships needs Time to growNeed respect between each personHonesty and truth – you need to be honest with each otherNeed trust – each person has got to believe in the other. And earn that trust Sometimes friendships need space – everybody is an individual sometimes they need to do their own thing or want to spend time with other friends. This doe not mean they are not your friends.A good freindship will involve listening to each other – this way we learn to strengthen our friendship.
As it is friendship week we have decided to make these trees into Trees of friendship. We hope that as the trees grow into stronger trees so will our friendships with each other, as long as we give them the things we needs.

As a school we have been very fortunate in receiving 430 trees from the Woodland Trust. This pack of trees is specifically designed to attract wildlife to our school.<br />On Wednesday and Thursday this week all children in our school plus children from the Nursery and some High schools will be planting these trees together.<br />
