Rivers in the Classroom

Posted on

Inspiring children to connect with their local rivers through fun, practical and interactive experiences.

The Ribble Life Together project enabled us to connect even more people, from across the catchment, with their local rivers in even more ways than before. This included involving schools in other work that the Ribble Life Partnership is doing to benefit the Ribble’s rivers, so that they are an active part of their river’s heritage.

“Thank you so much for an absolutely amazing day, the kids loved it and so did the staff!”

S Templar, Springfield Community Primary School, Burnley

“Easily one of the top ten experiences of a long teaching career.”

Mrs J Twigg, Stonyhurst College
