The ‘Tractor Torch Tour’ started on Monday, 23rd April at Drummore Primary School. The tractor and all volunteer drivers will visit every primary school in Dumfries and Galloway this week finishing at Langholm Primary School on Friday, 27th April.
Yesterday the tractor made it to our school. We received a framed piece of work from Eastriggs Primary and handed over one of our school jumpers and a framed piece of work that Callum H, Cameron and Mark made.
The boys were tasked with showing learning which reflected ‘Farming, Food and the Countryside’. Using handwriting techniques they have been practising with Mrs Park and Mrs Holliday they produced a lovely piece of work, above, which has now been handed on to Carrutherstown Primary.
The tour has been organised by the Royal Highland Education Trust, which works in partnership with our education services to help children and young people learn about farming food and the countryside.
