S3 Source to Sea

Mr Price-Davies reports:

“Our S3 Duke of Edinburgh class recently went on their Source to Sea expedition with Dr Whitely, myself and Lynn Munro, our John Muir Trust Ranger/Conservation Officer. We walked into Strathan Bothy in 40+mph winds and camped the night before walking to Sandwood Bay the following day. The project has been planned by the pupils and Lynn to follow the river to the sea and learn more about our local habitat, environment and how we use it. We have put a little video together which we thought you might be interested to see and our hope it to create more outdoor and camping opportunities across all the schools that can be accessed by all ages!”
