Salmon Release Scheme
18 Mar 2015
Our Year 6 pupils have been enthusiastically participating in the Salmon Release Scheme, sponsored by the Irish Society. Over the past six weeks the pupils have been so lucky to have witnessed salmon eggs hatching within the special tank in the classroom. The pupils were then responsible for the care of the alevins (newly hatched salmon). This morning we accompanied pupils from Portglenone PS to release our salmon into the river and on returning to school had the opportunity to study and learn about the minibeasts we had gathered from the river. Thank you to Mark Patterson, Angling Consultant, for organising this brilliant learning opportunity. Check out the Primary 6 Gallery to view all the pictures.
