Sibford pupils become moth-ers!

Sibford School pupils and their parents will be staying up late on Friday 23 June (weather permitting) in the hope of discovering more about the wildlife that shares the school campus.

For one night only the school will be running a ‘Moth Evening’ … giving students and parents the chance to prepare and set special traps in order to catch and identify individual species.

Cath Harding, Head of Science at Sibford said: “Once it gets dark we will hopefully discover that the campus is a real moth playground. It will also be an opportunity to see what other wildlife comes out to play when the school is closed.”

The evening event is being led by Andy Newbold, a former teacher at Sibford who has a special interest in wildlife.
