P5 to 7 Sense of Place Workshops

I am sure that you know that the Sense of Place Workshops that took place on May 20th and 21st were a resounding success. The weather was amazing and the children engaged brilliantly with the activities on both days, even when they following some of them challenging.  All of the adults who worked with them commented on their respectful and positive attitude. We are extremely grateful to Mary-Lou and John Aitchison who allowed us to be based around their home at Keills after we had to move the swimming from Carsaig Bay. Not only did we have the privilege of using their facilities but John also shared with the children some of his thoughts about why our Hope Spot is so important; having filmed wildlife around the world with David Attenborough, John has great and valuable insight into why we need to know about and respect the amazing environment here around us in Argyll.

Many thanks also to Dan Coyle, the Merman, Holy Smith, local artist, Pete Creech and Oly Hemmings from Heart of Argyll Wildlife and Keira Anderson from Argyll Hope Spot for their brilliant tuition and Ant, Tom and George for transporting us on the days . The activities would not have been possible without funding from Argyll Hope Spot.

This was partnership working at its best.  You can see some photos of the days here: https://www.tayvallich.argyll-bute.sch.uk/hope-spot-wokshops/
