During lock down it was really hard to explain to our caterpillars why they weren't seeing the children any longer so we decided to send out the caterpillars to them! We also emailed every HT in Perth and Kinross to ask if they, any of their staff or parents, wanted a small box to rear. There was the promise of kits being bought, once things returned to more normality and the children, Mr Barr and Mrs Barr would be able to do the demonstrations of caterpillar care. We had an amazing response and this, plus the details of our Street promotion stalls last summer (which took place after we won our Change award) secured us a Champions award in July.
There was more to come - our school was nominated for an award at the SEA World Forum event taking place next week. Our school won the award for Sustainable development Goal 15: Life on land. This was a phenomenal achievement for our school - we were one of only 12 Scottish schools to be nominated, against other entries from 50 other countries. The SEA are sending us a link on the 22nd September which will allow us to see the forum - we will definitely share this with you!
Here are the children with their award!
