An Aberdeen school has showed its commitment to looking after the environment.
Pupils from Hazlehead Academy joined cohorts from across Scotland to visit Dumfries House in Ayrshire as part of The Prince’s Trust Environment Day.
The event comprised of workshops and competitions to encourage awareness of the human impact on environment and an appreciation of the beauty and mindfulness that comes with engaging with nature.
The children got to try a range of activities, including creating their own hydro-electric generator, designing textile art and learning bush craft skills.
The pupils were then treated to a tour of Valentin’s Education Farm, home to rare breeds including sheep, oose, chickens and turkey.
One team from Hazelhead Academy showcased their creativity after winning a plastic packaging reduction challenge.
Jacqueline Farrell, education director of The Prince’s Foundation at Dumfries House praised the work of the Aberdeen pupils.
She said: “The estate really came alive with dozens of engaged and active young people from all over Scotland participating in hands-on workshops and challenges. If they each take away just one idea of how to positively affect the natural environment, that will represent a step in the right direction.”
