Borneo training expedition

The training expedition for the Borneo expedition was held in Aviemore this weekend.  Thirty-seven pupils and six staff spent Saturday and Sunday working on the skills they will need to use as part of this summer’s expedition – team building, problem-solving, menu planning, cooking, personal safety, hygiene and first aid to name but a few.

Hopefully, the weather the will be slightly warmer in Borneo – with the exception of the trek on Mount Kinabalu – than it was in chilly Aviemore.

National 5 Biologists visit Vane Farm

As part of their course, the National 5 Biology classes have had the opportunity to get out and about at Vane Farm on the shores of Loch Leven.  The pupils were sampling land plants; looking at the distribution of water animals, and learning about conservation.

This was a fantastic outdoor learning experience for all of the classes…especially when the sun shone!

Our thanks go to the RSPB Reserve at Vane Farm.
