ALTHOUGH winter is only just beginning, at Studlands Rise School they are already looking forward to the spring.

The school held a Green Day, which saw parents and pupils come together to plant bulbs in the school grounds.

Emma Cooley, from the Friends of Studlands Rise, who organised the day, said: "The children all came in dressed in green, and were asked to either bring some bulbs in to plant or make a donation towards the bulbs we have bought."

The Friends of Studlands Rise have set up a committee with the sole purpose of raising funds to improve the grounds of the school.

The Green Day is the first stage of its plan.

"We've had lots of parents come down and offer to help and the children have been very enthusiastic.

"Hopefully we'll have plenty of daffodils and snow drops blooming in the spring," she said.
