Into the wild for S2 John Muir Group

Monday 21st January 2019

Our S2 students – who gained their Gold JASS award last year – were invited to set up their own John Muir award group this year.

During the last term, these young people have managed to build up their confidence and become friends. Naturally they decided to continue this positive collaboration throughout their second year of school.

The John Muir Award group is established by our Outdoor Learning Department. So far our students have discovered and started exploring the wonderful wild places dotted across Midlothian such as Gore Glen, Springfield Mill, Penicuik Estate, Vogrie etc. Regardless of the weather they are braving the wind, cold and rain in their efforts to improve our natural environment. We are proud to share their enthusiasm and effort in helping out the Midlothian rangers with their conservation work.

They have volunteered in making a fire pit with sitting logs at Springfield Mill; they have cleared up cycling/walking paths at Auchendinny, as well as securing slippery steps in the woods of Gore Glen.

Well done!

We all hope that our community will appreciate the hard work and fantastic contribution from the young Lasswade rangers.
