Nursery and Primary 3 pupils have had an exciting time today. We were greeted by three chicks that had hatched overnight and over the course of the morning they were joined by a further three. This is all part of our joint Living Eggs project and we will be caring for them for two weeks. Family and friends are welcome to come in for a look when dropping or collecting pupils.
Here is a little time lapsed video showing our 5th chick hatching. Amazing for the children to see a new life coming into the world.
