Scottish wildlife in pri­mary class­room spotlight

The Oban Times - - Districts -

PUPILS from Small Isles Pri­mary School on Jura and Port Char­lotte and Keills pri­mary schools on Is­lay re­cently en­joyed in­ter­ac­tive Scottish wildlife ses­sions with the ‘ Wild about Scot­land’ team.

The pro­gramme has been de­vel­oped by the Royal Zoo­log­i­cal So­ci­ety for Scot­land (RZSS) in part­ner­ship with the Cly­des­dale Bank to sup­port con­ser­va­tion across Scot­land. The pupils took part in fun ses­sions on Scottish na­tive species, their habi­tats and en­vi­ron­ments.

Port Char­lotte Pri­mary School pupils were given 15 tree saplings to plant in their grounds. It is hoped more than 420 trees will be planted across the coun­try in the next 12 months.

A re­cent ad­di­tion to the Wild about Scot­land cam­paign, this is a great way for schools to leave a last­ing green legacy.

Young­sters from Is­lay and Jura have been go­ing ‘ Wild about Ar­gyll’.
