Dalry Primary School Garden and Rabbits!

I visited Dalry Primary School today to meet Vanessa to deputy head teacher to look at the school grounds in preparation for facilitating some creative writing workshops with pupils as part of the forthcoming Sharing Secrets Festival.

The school has a lovely garden area in its grounds

with some nice nature themed artworks around the fencing

Caroline the school janitor joined us to introduce the school animals! There are chickens, the chicks are tiny at the moment and too speedy to really get a good photo

and there are four rabbits! These two were more than happy to pose for their photos and agreed to work with me in the creative writing workshops

If the weather is as good on the day of the workshops as it is today it will be great! We'll spend time looking round the garden, observing, talking and writing about the garden, the insects and birds that visit it and of course we'll spend time with the rabbits!

My workshops won't be open to the general public, but many elements of the Sharing Secrets Festival are, you can find out more here.

This sounds perfect for you... and I'm sure the rabbits will play their part in the workshops with friendliness and fun!
