A group of S2 pupils from Cas­tle Dou­glas High School and Dalry Sec­ondary School took part in an “Our World” event at Dum­fries House re­cently.

The day, which was staged to launch the schools’ new au­tumn cur­ricu­lum, saw pupils from dif­fer­ent lo­cal au­thor­i­ties come to­gether.

The young peo­ple took part in events cov­er­ing key ar­eas in­clud­ing food and hor­ti­cul­ture, farm­ing and out­door ed­u­ca­tion.

De­pute head­teacher Lor­raine Gil­lies said: “Our pupils were in­volved in work­shops look­ing at sus­tain­abil­ity and grow­ing food.

“All staff and pupils in­volved had a very en­joy­able ex­pe­ri­ence and were given an ex­cel­lent op­por­tu­nity to ap­ply their learn­ing in a real life out­door con­text.”
