Landscaping at St Francis Primary School

Children from the Gypsy/Traveller community and friends from the settled community have been working with STEP developing new skills for life and work at St Francis Primary School in Edinburgh. As part of an initiative to make connections between the pupils’ lives inside and outside of school, the pupils are able to use their practical, creative and problem-solving skills to plan a better environment for the whole school community.  So far, the outside areas have been photographed and measured. The photos have been uploaded to iPads to allow the school grounds to be designed for fun and learning. The pupils have also been doing internet searches to find some very unusual inspiration from other places. Watch this space for photographic updates!
