Community take action with Fish in Schools river clean-up

Pupils, parents and staff at St Vincent’s Primary joined forces to improve their neighbourhood with a clean-up of the Auldhouse Burn ahead of the Fish in Schools fish release day. The burn, which runs directly under the school and through the park next door, is a great asset for the community but is sadly on the receiving end of a large amount of littering. The pupils, who have spent the past few weeks caring for brown trout in class and learning about factors than can impact ecosystems, were inspired to taken action and organised a clean-up of the riverbank. We were delighted to see the school get so on-board with the stewardship aspect of the project and sharing it with their community!
