Crawford PS planting at Fairygate Wood 2014 Slideshow

Waiting for Video...

CLYDESDALE school pupils who go down to the woods won’t be in for any surprises – as they’ve already been out there for a series of lessons!

Pupils from Crawford Primary have been enjoying the great outdoors by planting trees at Fairygate Wood and enjoying other activities outside of the classroom.

The children each picked up a John Muir Award for their efforts, named after the 19th century Scot who crossed the Atlantic and was an early advocate of preservation of wilderness in the United States.

The primary also collected a Forest School Award and to celebrate all 30 children were allowed to plant a tree in a nearby wood.

After doing that, the children enjoyed some toasted marshmallows while camped out round the fire.

For the full story, pick up a copy of this week’s Carluke and Lanark Gazette which is out now.

The pictures featured in our slideshow were taken by freelance photographer Lenny Warren.
