We learned about the work that is done by the Norholm as part of the Shetland Aquaculture industry. We found out about the different roles of the crew and the qualifications they need to do their jobs. Thank you for having us to visit!
Ms Smith who will be teaching at Burravoe next session came for her first visit to us today - she had a very interesting first day!
We took Crunch, our visiting Australian croc with us so he could tell the children back at Tipperary Station School about industry in Shetland.

Monday 2nd June: This afternoon we held our Triathlon. We planned this as the major part of our Game On Scotland Challenge. The children had done all the planning and organising for the event from choosing what to actually do for the challenge down to thinking what was actually needed on the day. As they had to do everything they had to consider their own skill levels and how they could work as a big team or sometimes in smaller teams. They did really well and we are all very proud of what they achieved. They had fun too!
They started with the baton procession; everyone had designed and made a baton with a secret message hidden inside. When they read out their messages it was the first time anyone had heard them.
