Working with GlenFrome Primary School, Eastville

The involvement of schools in various projects is a great way, firstly, to introduce children to the natural environment (about benefits and dangers), and secondly, to let children think and express their opinion about why it is dangerous or why we should clean the reservoir. attract eco points to life. Often children are asked to express themselves verbally or in writing, in which case you can turn to for help.

We continued working with GlenFrome Primary School on river project-work up to Christmas.  The children had a river day on the River Frome above Eastville Lake on 8th  November 2012 and put on a great show of their work at the School on 10th December 2012.  Thank you to everyone who supported that event.  The following week, the children staged the same exhibition at the Create Centre, in central Bristol.  Many thanks to Glen Frome School, and Lisa Worgan and Alys Parker (Real Ideas Organisation) for their work on this part of the project.  A practical toolbox (A River Topic: How can we tell people about the power of Rivers and Flooding?) produced from this school work is now being shared with other Bristol schools.  Please get in touch at if you would like further information.
