North-east school pupils took part in a Prince’s Trust event this week.
Pupils from Hazlehead Academy were among 160 schoolchildren to attend the Environment Day at Dumfries House in Ayrshire on Monday.
During the event, which was organised by the Prince of Wales’ charity, the youngsters were able to create textile art, as well as learning how to grow vegetables. Pupils also created their own hydro-electric generator.
Jacqueline Farrell, education director of The Prince’s Foundation at Dumfries House, said: “The estate really came alive with dozens of engaged and active young people from all over Scotland participating in hands-on workshops and challenges.
“If they each take away just one idea of how to positively affect the natural environment, that will represent a step in the right direction.”
Dumfries House was “saved for the nation” by the Prince of Wales in 2007, and is now used to engage people in learning experiences.
