Gardening Club

Gergana Daskalova, a 4th year student at the University of Edinburgh, has been been working with five enthusiastic S1 students (Ben, Cleo, Eilidh, Hannah and Niall) on Trinity Academy’s allotment space in Victoria Park.

The group was established to encourage pupils to get involved in gardening and science outside the classroom and they are learning about allotment management and how to grow food in a way that is good for the environment, urban wildlife, and the local community.

They have created a blog with the title Trinity Gardening Club documenting their gardening adventures.
They are proud of their contribution to the Victoria Park Community Garden and keen to share their hard work and enthusiasm with the school community.

You can also read more about this from one of the students, Ben Liddall 1A1, on the school website.

Reading with dyslexia

 

Dyslexia - animated GIFVictor Widell’s website is designed to give visitors some idea of the experience of reading with dyslexia. The letters within each word on the site are scrambled and moving around erratically, and you can only read each sentence if you slow down and focus.

Dyslexia Scotland provide resources and links on their website for those needing advice and guidance on dyslexia-related issues in Scotland.
