Carntall Chickens 
In Carntall, we value the importance of giving our children a voice. That's why we have helped our School Council to fulfill the children's dream of having their own flock of chickens. Not only will the chickens provide hands on opportunities for learning, they will also support our Eco ethos by reducing organic and food waste and will enable the children to become junior entrepreneurs by developing their own mini business! A huge thank-you to Mr & Mrs Harvey Keys, Mr & Mrs Winston McKeown and Mr & Mrs Stephen Robinson for sponsoring and organising this venture and making the children's dream come true!

I wish each pupil every success with the future career paths they take and I look forward to seeing Carntall continuing to grow as a special part of this quiet rural area”.
