Dear Halcyon community,

Grade 8 would like to thank you all for your generously bringing in all your recycled "junk". We seem to have plenty of cardboard boxes.

We greatly need aluninium foil containers, plastic containers e.g. washing up liquid bottles, old shampoo bottles etc and especially tin cans. These are all going to be used towards their "junk Robots"

Many thanks from Grade 8
