“The Scottish Government wants to ensure there are opportunities for all young people to participate in outdoor learning. Delivery of Curriculum for Excellence, our new approach to learning and teaching, can help make this a reality by making connections between indoor and outdoor learning across the curriculum. That’s why I’m pleased to see the excellent work taking place at Menstrie Primary, where pupils’ learning is enriched in the outdoor classroom.”
Keith Brown, MSP

“The great pioneering Scottish ecologist and town planner, Professor Sir Patrick Geddes, said that “good teaching begins, neither with knowledge nor discipline, but through delight … [that requires developing] the feeling for the subject.” This is the tradition in Scottish education that Real World Learning honours and helps to carry forward to future generations. It is important not just for our environment, but also for our culture and for the wellbeing of individuals. It is important work, exciting work, and as such, it has my warmest endorsement.”
Alastair McIntosh, Visiting Professor of Human Ecology, Centre for Human Ecology / University of Strathclyde
