Rhunahaorine’s preschoolers have been coming out of their shells as they benefit from the nursery’s Beach Schools programme.
This term, the children have been heading to the beach at Tayinloan every Friday, as part of their active outdoor play.
At ‘Crocodile Camp’, which they built on the shore, they cook their own damper bread on willow sticks sharpened with potato peelers, at a camp fire.
The children enjoy collecting treasures from the beach and they make sure to extinguish the fire safely and leave the camp and beach as they find it.
During the non-summer terms, the children head to ‘Rhino Camp’ behind the school, as part Forest Schools, where they make shelters, are taught new knots and learn how to look after the environment.
