5 schools in the Wandle catchment are taking part in Trout in the Classroom 2013 – 14. These are:
- Francis Barber PRU
- Thomas’ Clapham
- Culvers House Primary (supported by Penta Consulting)
- SuttonGrammar School
- Harris Primary School, Kenley (supported by Kendra – Kenley Residents’ Association)
We’d like to sincerely thank our supporters who have contributed funding to the programme:
- Scrod Wanderers Piscatorial Society
- Penta Consulting
- William Allen Young Trust
- Reed Consulting
- Kendra – Kenley Residents’ Association
- BSPS Ltd
- Breeze Free
Our thanks go to all the volunteers who have helped this year – in particular Jez Mallinson for all his driving and loving care of the back-up fish tank, Mike van der Vord for his great contribution to bringing in Harris Academy and tireless contributions, and the experience of John O’Brien and Dave Alford who have as always been a great support.
We would also like to especially mention Robin Reeves who passed away this January. Robin was involved for the past two years and had always been an enormous help and support to the programme and the Trust overall. He will be sorely missed.
Classroom on the Wandle
In addition, we have been leading lessons for schools not involved in Trout in the Classroom. This involves both guided walks along the river and lessons in the classroom focussed on river processes and ecology. The schools that have availed themselves of this service this term have been:
- Southmead Primary School
- Chipstead Primary School
If you are interested in bringing the Wandle Trust to your school during 2014, please contact our Co-ordinator.
