We enjoyed an informative and stimulating morning on our ecovillage tour. Our two guides, Richard and Patrick, shared lots of fascinating facts about renewable energy and how the ecovillage supports a sustainable way of life.

We were a bit unsure of the Living Machine but the end result was amazing! The meditation room was  a favourite place to sit and think. The houses were well designed to ensure  very energy efficient heating systems. We saw evidence of lots of recycled items and a love of the environment. The low level street lighting and the car sharing scheme were of interest to us too.

We really enjoyed the experience of visiting and appreciating a community that is different to where we live.

Packed lunches were eaten at Grant Park in Forres and we split up into groups to play football, parachute games or just sit back and relax!

Thank you to our parent helpers and our Findhorn guides for a super day!OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

We enjoyed a noisy treat this afternoon with Steve from Drum Fun. We felt energised, excited and had aching hands after an enthusiastic session! We played back rhythms, developed new ones, tried a Mexican wave in fifteen seconds and joined in with a unique chant. The smiles reflect a really fantastic time!

Model Buildings

The pupils really enjoyed constructing their buildings from junk materials.There was lots of imaginative ideas and creativity. One construction had a working garage complete with moving door and a vehicle. Have a look at our photos.
