Kite Day 

Spring has SPRUNG at West Garland with an activity both staff and students could enjoy! Taking a unique approach to learning and fun, kites day proved to be a great spring outdoor learning activity. Educational focus was placed on concepts such as: Wind speed, constructing a kite and the history and science behind kite flying!

Students and staff at West Garland are known for their creative flair and this activity proved just that!
