A day in the bog

June 23rd, 2014

Today we went to the bog to turn our turf, some turf was dry enough to be footed. This turf will be bagged over the next few weeks and sold to raise money for our school.

We worked very hard and we were rewarded with some homemade bread and treats afterwards.

Many thanks to all the parents who came with us to help and a big thank you to Christina for the delicious bread!

Also a big thanks to Jimmy Howard for cutting the turf for us!

After all our hard work we had a little break!
