Scottish wildlife in primary classroom spotlight
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’.
