On Friday 23rd September, our Junior Carsonians, Oscar and Lewis, certainly “did us proud” when they manned the JC Stand at the Twinning Climate Change Event– one of the events held to mark the 20th Anniversary of the Inchture Area Twinning Association’s links with Fleac, France. Many accolades, both in French and English, were awarded to them for their knowledge on the subject, friendly disposition and confident presentation.
On Thursday 12th September, the whole school went on a trip to Perth Museum and the Fair Maid’s House Visitor and Education Centre.
Pupils learned about native and “alien invader” wildlife, including the plight of the Scottish red squirrel and British bees. Pupils explored native food chains and discovered more about population growth, extinction and various factors (such as diseases) that are endangering our wildlife and natural environment.
Congratulations to our P4 and P1 pupils who won the poster competition run by local producer Scotherbs.
As part of the Open Farm Sunday initiative, Scotherbs were open to the public on June 9th. To help advertise the event, they ran a design competition for schools in the local area, where pupils were to design a poster promoting the day, with a theme of “Discover the Story Behind your Food”.
Out of all the entries, the pupils pictured here won first place in the two age categories and were rewarded with seed packets and books on growing and using herbs and plants in cooking. Well done you two!
