Ross High School ASN pupils have continued this year with their weekly visits down to Musselburgh Lagoons to enjoy some time on the water in canoes. It allows staff to have the one to one time that the pupils require but in a unique and stimulating environment.
This programme is organised by Mr Muchall from the school and Keith here at Outdoor Learning. The school staff support all the pupils and have a cracking time on the wtaer themselves as can be seen from the smiles in the photo above.
These afternoons are also supported from the community and provides links to further opportunities for pupils. Supporting partners include Beyond Boundaries East Lothian – Steve Nelson and Councillor John Williamson.
The pupils have been involved with canoeing and/or kayaking dependant upon their ability.
The ASN unit also organise an activity day every May at Musselburgh Lagoons involving East Lothian’s Beyond Boundaries East Lothian (an Adventure Club for those with disabilities and mental health issues); East Lothian Council’s Outdoor Learning Service and Calvert Trust.
During this day pupil’s have a chance to try a variety of activities including canoeing; kayaking; sailing; archery; blo-karting; cycling; bushcraft.
