Amazonia 2 - book your place NOW!

Our second visit to Amazonia is on Tuesday 25th April. Places are filling up fast so grab a place as soon as possible!

S1 Trip to Amazonia

Our first trip of the year to Amazonia at Strathclyde Country Park was very popular with pupils. We enjoyed an excellent guided tour and met loads of amazing 
rainforest creatures. After a lot of jumping about in the 'Interactive Zone' we headed for the handling session which was the highlight of the trip for many pupils. Our stars of the day were the pupils (and staff) who really fought their fear and managed to hold a tarantula or touch a snake. Well done to everyone!

S2 Mud'n'Cheese trip

Our S2 pupils had a sunny day out studying a fantastic range of glaciated landscapes in the local area. The day ended with a walk to the top of Duncryne Hill to take in the stunning view over Loch Lomond. We had to brave some very deep, slippy mud on the way and the pupils who had opted for wellies were very pleased with their choice of footwear! One comment overheard on the steep part of the hill had us in fits; 'The best case scenario here is that I break a leg'....eh what's the worst?
Our minibus banter was based around cheese and Madness (yes, we know they're a band from the 80's). The ultimate insults of 'you look like cheddar' and 'you smell like Parmesan' were the best of the day. We also found a 'dead thing' at Lake of Menteith which is always a hit with the pupils, except when it's on the end of a stick and they are being chased with it.
Don't forget there's a car/bus at least once an hour on this road!!
