Pupils of Currie Primary School Eco-Council and Playground Council accompanied by Hannah Knight of the RSPB, accept a donation of two bat habitat boxes from Pip Phillips of Real Foods.The donation was arranged after Real Foods, who are seeking to contribute to a local ecological project, were introduced to Currie Primary School by the RSPB and invited to contribute to an enterprise driven by Acting Depute Head, Neil Mackenzie, in which Currie Primary School and it’s pupils are taking part in the Edinburgh Living Landscape Initiative and the RSPB’s Giving Nature a Home Project.
The Edinburgh Living Landscape Initiative is a partnership project that aims to create, restore and connect green areas of the city to make attractive and bio-diverse landscapes that will be healthy, nature rich and resilient to climate change. This goes hand in hand with the RSPB Edinburgh’s ‘Giving nature a home in Edinburgh’ Project to achieve similar goals including better connectivity for wildlife, providing homes for nature and inspiring local communities and schools to play an active part in this.
The improvements that Currie Primary School are making as a result of their involvement with these two very positive environmental campaigns also contribute to their work in securing an Eco School’s Green Flag Award. There are many other exciting initiatives that are taking place as a result of these two projects so watch this space for more information as the project develops.
Well done Currie Primary School!
