Pupils at St Matthew’s Primary in Rosewell were able to experience a series of interactive Scottish wildlife lessons thanks to a specially designed double-decker education bus currently touring Scotland.

The ‘Wild about Scotland’ bus is visiting schools as part of a wider campaign being brought to all of Scotland’s 32 local councils over the next 12 months.

The programme has been developed by the Royal Zoological Society for Scotland (RZSS) and has been made possible through a partnership between Clydesdale Bank and the RZSS to support the charity in its conservation goals across Scotland.

Pupils from St Matthew’s got to get their hands dirty in a variety of interactive lessons which focused on Scottish native species, their habitats and environments. Lessons were delivered by a dedicated education team from RZSS.
