Greystoke school

Borderlines schools programme got under way in February at one of our favourites Greystoke School where all 40 pupils began a journey taking them from the water cycle to angling in a series of six sessions.

gs2As well as measuring the flow, learning about erosion, deposition, the stream and its load, youngsters also examined otter spraints, took kick samples and explored the streams invertebrate population. It was a joy to be amongst such enthusiasm and good behaviour!

They even made a song about the stone fly!
