S1 Amazonia Visit

In May S1 pupils had an excursion to Amazonia.  Here we saw a variety of animals that can be found in tropical rainforests around the world.  We got to hold some of the animals including a stick insect, a snake, a bearded dragon, a Madagascan hissing cockroach and some of us even 'high 5'd' a tarantula!  For more photos click this link.

S4 Residential Field Trip to Kingdrogan

In March the S4 pupils went on a residential trip to the Kindrogan Field Studies Centre.  Here we learned practical skills whilst studying a river.  We learned the different techniques used to measure the depth, flow and width of the river as well as learning how to avoid falling in!
