We are looking for any information regarding the very strange disappearance of all the resources that were set up in Balvonie Wood today, in preparation for the P3 year group to visit the wood to partake in some exciting Outdoor Learning.
Having spent a significant amount of time this morning setting up the resources which were clearly marked with the school’s name, the P3 staff were devastated to discover that when they arrived at the woods this afternoon, all of the resources and materials had been removed completely (except for a now-battered fire box). Clearly, this is a really disappointing and upsetting discovery and left the children unable to do any of the carefully planned out activities in the wood and has left both staff and pupils extremely frustrated.
Aside from the fact that the preparation had been disturbed, we are now without numerous resources which will have to be replaced out of school funds.
As you will be aware, the development of Outdoor Learning is a key part of the school’s current drive and making use of the environment in and around the school is a huge part of day-to-day learning and teaching and this is the first time we have had a negative experience in this area.
If anyone has any information regarding the whereabouts of the resources, please contact the school office.
