MORE WORK WITH CHILDREN

March 6, 2008

Yesterday, one of my colleagues visited Strachan Primary School and talked with the whole school during an assembly.  She was most impressed by the questions the children asked and has asked them to make posters for the exhibition at the end of May in our local art centre, Lang Byre at Woodend Barn.  We have decided to call the exhibition ‘Bring Your Bag’.  Two of the team will be talking with Durris Primary School next week, and that only leaves the Hill of Banchory Primary which we will visit in April. 

 I feel very strongly that we have to involve the younger generation in this campaign as it will be up to them to carry forward any work to put right the environmental damage previous generations to theirs have done.

 We were told yesterday that we had been awarded funding from the Marr Area Office…… but it has to be spent by the end of March;  so we now really have to get out skates on and make final decisions on the bags.  There is so much choice on the different websites, it is all a bit of a nightmare.  I am trying to involve our ‘major’ donors in the decision as much as I can as I would like them to be happy with the final outcome.

 I am really thrilled with the way this blog has worked out.  I have had over 600 people look at it and it has only been goiong a few weeks.  That makes the time and effort spent all worthwhile.  [A big ‘thank you’ to my son, Andrew, who edits pages for me from time to time and who helped me to set the blog up.]
