Summer Safety Message
Congratulations to all of our teachers and students on a successful 2017/18 school year. It's time to get outside and enjoy summer in Paradise! Children will be taking a break from the school routine and playing in our neighbourhoods, parks and playgrounds. During the break we ask that motorists please use extra caution and reduce speeds to ensure all of our children stay safe while out having fun this summer. We wish all of our students and teachers a safe and happy summer.
Compost Bins Available
With approximately 30% of household waste being organic, composting helps to significantly reduce waste and the costs associated with using landfills. Backyard compost is also a simple way to enrich your lawn or garden by restoring vitality to depleted soil. Compost bins are available for purchase at Town Hall. Pick up one today for $20 during regular hours (8:30 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.). For more information on backyard composting, please visit the Rethink Waste Newfoundland and Labrador website.
