Oil and gas company Apache have been busy working with St Fergus and Crimond primary schools.
On Tuesday, May 20, ten pupils from Crimond School visited Apache’s base at St Fergus Gas Terminal to help plant five new trees as part of National Tree Planting Day.
The group that went along are Crimond School’s Garden Gnomes, who help to look after the school’s plants and grow various fruit and vegetables including carrots and tomatoes.
The new trees are located at Apache’s recently revamped garden.
Fiona Allardyce, public affairs co-ordinator for Apache said: “Along with all the other people involved in this garden project, we are delighted to welcome pupils from Crimond Primary School to SAGE to assist in the planting of new trees as part of National Tree Planting day.”
Meanwhile, St Fergus School received five new computers from Apache on Wednesday, May 21.
There is one desktop in each classroom and they are all connected to a separate smartboard which is essential for teaching.
The new computers are a lot faster with one pupil describing the old PCs as: “From the Stone Age.”
Acting head teacher Avril Sutherland said: “We are absolutely delighted, they will make a huge difference as there is one in every teaching area.
“They all have the latest technology which will help us to provide high quality teaching.”
Fiona added: “Educational support is a key aspect of our overall community investment.
“We hope that the school will benefit hugely from the purchase of these computers.”
