Duo are green fingered friends
Two pupils from Cathkin High’s ASN unit have been given places on South Lanarkshire Council’s Grass Routes project.
The project is an out of school practical learning experience that focuses on horticulture.
Two days a week, S3 pupils Reagan Grieve and Calum McMillan will attend the Whitehill Neighboorhood Centre in Hamilton hoping to achieve many different vocational qualifications.
The ASN unit has also been awarded some funding to allow them to develop their own garden space using the boys’skills. This will include growing some of the best fruits in season and showing the link between growing fruits and making sustainable and healthy eating choices.
The project will run until the end of the summer term.
Mr McGown, the ASN teacher, said: “For Calum and Reagan, this is a fantastic opportunity to learn transferable skills and qualifications out with what we provide here in Cathkin High. It is also a great chance for the rest of the pupils in the ASN base to see the effort and work put into growing and cultivating fruit and vegetables and then to see the fruits of their labour at the end of this brilliant project.”
