The environment has become integral to learning at Salen Primary School, as their project demonstrated. The children have taken part in all kinds of work in the school grounds, including growing potatoes and sweet potatoes in containers made from old car tyres (the best part of this was harvesting and eating them!), keeping a photo diary of the seasons in the school gardens, creating new habitats for hedgehogs, bats and minibeasts and making nestboxes and food for wild birds.
Recycling is second nature to the children and they have enjoyed visits to learn about other habitats in their locality, such as Fishnish Forest. It has been truly inspiring to see how environmentally aware the children of Salen Primary School are and this made them worthy winners of their Total Green School Award.
