Strathpeffer Primary School, Highlands.
I had a really enjoyable time at Strathpeffer Primary School in May, helping them to make mosaic stepping stones for a new community garden, sited at the back of the school. Primary 6 parent Jean MacNair organised the event and invited the Ladies' Lunch Club, which meets in the community wing of the school, to join Primary 6 in this fun activity.
They made a wide variety of designs using shells, pebbles, marbles and the like, which they laid upside down into sand. Then everyone enjoyed getting very messy mixing cement by hand, in washing up bowls, then back-filling the moulds.
A few days later, I returned to the school, where everyone who had taken part was eagerly gathered to turn over the moulds and see the designs the right way up! And they looked wonderful!
Thank you to the headmistress and 'the jannie' for being so helpful and thank you to Jean and all the participants for making it such a happy, successful workshop!
