Competition time!

Clyde in the Classroom 2015 has almost come to a close, but we’d like to take this opportunity to invite the participating pupils to take part in our Clyde in the Classroom competition. This year we would like pupils to design an image for a Clyde River Foundation reusable eco bag . The winning design will be printed on a bag for each member of the class – please see the flyer below for full details!

FAO Teachers: Press coverage

We are now at the stage where some of our classes are ready to release their fish! If you would like to arrange press coverage of your Clyde in the Classroom project, through your local newspaper for example, then feel free to download our press release template from the Teacher Information Page, stored under the ‘Teacher’s Information Pack’ pack. You can either send the release with your own photos to your local press contact or arrange in advance for a photographer to come along on the day.

Weekly visits

You can find when we will be visiting your school by looking at the weekly visits page, click on this link and it will take you straight there. You will find it in the teachers information page under project stages. These days will not be in use for the week beginning the 9th February due to the February holiday but will be in place for the following week.If you have any questions give us a call.

Hatcheries and holidays

This weekend the pupils are on holiday for the February break and we have had a lot of calls concerning the welfare of the trout over the break. Please do not worry, the key point to remember is when you return to school on Wednesday please take the whole morning to bring the temperature down so as not to shock you fish. 

As a result of the holiday we will out in force on Wednesday so if you have any concerns or are presented with a problem on your return please do not hesitate to give us a call on 0141 330 5080.

Have a great February break.

Kidblog update

The Clyde in the Classroom blogs have now been set up and the login information has been emailed to the school contact for the project. If you would like a blog but haven’t let us know yet, please contact Gemma on gemma.jennings@glasgow.ac.uk. Thanks!

Eggtastic!

Most of you are now proud custodians of your trout eggs with the last batches being delivered tomorrow. It is a week since the first eggs were delivered and some have already hatched! We are looking forward to seeing the brown trout develop when we visit each week!
