Achahoish Primary School is at it again.

Having fun learning experiences and making the most of the school’s outdoor space, that is.

Principal Teacher Anna Graham explained: ‘We are working together to make our community garden space an inviting place to be again.

‘We have been cutting down (trailer loads of) overgrowth and re-making a space for our raised beds. A quick break to make our own dens with rooms!

‘We are currently working on a science topic on sound waves and will be making our own wind chimes from copper pipe we have had donated, which we will be using to make a sound garden section.

‘The children also found some old fishing net on the beach and worked as a team to make a school hammock in our outdoor classroom on the beach.’
