Grass-root environmental learning

IT was outdoor lessons for pupils from Sacred Heart Catholic Primary School, when they joined MP John Healey at Old Moor Nature Reserve.

The Goldthorpe kids invited Mr Healey to share their experience, as part of a UK-wide initiative by the RSPB, the Field Studies Council and the Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust, to get children outdoors, to “understand their environment through hands-on, practical experiences”.
