Pupils at a small rural Donside school were praised by environment minister Stewart Stevenson for their excellent work on a ‘Salmon in the Classroom’ project.

Mr Stevenson visited Cluny Primary School, near Sauchen, on Friday (November 25).

The project, run by the River Don Trust, encouraged the children to learn about the lifecycle of the salmon by rearing the fish in the school for three months, before releasing the young fish into the local burn.

The children gave a presentation about their learning to Mr Stevenson, local MSP Dennis Robertson, members of the River Don Trust and RAFTS (Rivers and Fisheries Trusts Scotland).
