Hillhead Primary School, Kirkintilloch.
Hillhead Primary School, Kirkintilloch, along with volunteer parents, have been working hard to make a nature garden, both for teaching outdoors and for everyone to sit in and relax.
I only had two days at the school, but we certainly made best use of the time! The older pupils took turns to work on a large, cheerful mosaic sign for the gardens and the younger children made mosaic flowers and beasties onto mesh, so that they could be tranferred to the garden by the adults.
The afternoon of the second day was lovely and sunny and some of the auxilliary staff volunteered to help me attach the wee designs onto various rocks around the garden so that they could be 'found' by the children as they wanndered around.
My visit was short but sweet, with the pupils entering into the spirit of things with great gusto and creating work that will be appreciated by the whole community for some time to come.
