Callander Primary School Benefits from Volunteer Support

On Thursday 30th November, Friends of Loch Lomond and The Trossachs (FOLLAT) held their Make a Difference Day at Callander Primary School. Despite the cold weather, three volunteers worked alongside the school’s janitor, Paul James, and Gordon Kerr, Vice Chair of the Callander Primary Parent Council, to trim back overgrowing shrubs, clear up autumn leaves and remove briars.

Head Teacher, Tanya Starkey, said: “It has been absolutely fantastic to be supported by the Friends of Loch Lomond and Trossachs as part of the “Make a Difference Day” initiative. The work the volunteers undertook really has made a difference to both the appearance to our school as well as making part of the grounds more accessible for the school community to use. The children are delighted to continue to take their learning outdoors and will now be able to access even more of our school grounds as a result of the great work carried out by the volunteers. A huge thank you from Callander Primary School.”

FOLLAT Chair, John Urquhart, stated: “Despite a low turnout of volunteers, our Make a Difference event at Callander Primary School was a big success for all concerned. The school’s dinner ladies helped to keep us warm with some delicious soup and Deli Ecosse were kind enough to accommodate us at lunchtime.”

Friends of Loch Lomond and The Trossachs’ Make a Difference Day proved to be a success, with the volunteers achieving a great deal at Callander Primary School. The children now have the opportunity to explore more of the school grounds and take their learning outdoors.
