Miss Cotter on Eigg

Miss Cotter spent a very enjoyable weekend on the Isle of Eigg during the school holidays on a networking course with the Speygrian Trust who bring together teachers, writers, artists, musicians and scientists to explore creative approaches to outdoor learning. Through formal workshops and informal discussions, people from a wide range of backgrounds are encouraged to share ideas and learn from each other.

As usual, she gathered lots of exciting ideas for using our outdoor environment at Mid Calder Primary School.
