Gillespie news – goodbye chicks, visitor from the Guardian

GOODBYE CHICKS!!! Chicks just before they left

Sadly the gorgeous chicks are saying good bye to us and leaving Gillespie School. We think it is heartbreaking naturally, because they were born at our school, moreover we don’t want them to leave. This will be very depressing for the children also the teachers as well.

Look at the bright side though, they will have more additional space to move around furthermore they will have a chance to see the world. The lovely chicks will become pets.

Gillespie visitor from The Guardian!!

Our visitor from The Guardian newspaper, Alok Jha, came to talk to us in assembly last week about his wild adventure in the South Pole!  He showed us pictures of penguins, seals and other amazing creatures. He told us about his scary trip, when he got stuck on his ship because of all the ice. There were lots of questions about what it was like. Carole will send any more that we think of by email, which Alok kindly said he would try to answer. Thank you Alok!
