PUPILS from Golden Grove School’s award-winning eco club went camping at Pembroke’s Glan Y Mor farm recently.

The farm, which is operated as a part of Greenlinks, has been a popular destination for pupils. The camping experience was enjoyed by all from the Pembroke school.

During their stay they helped feed the farm animals, took a walk around Pembroke Castle and experienced having a campfire, complete with toasted marshmallows.

The youngsters have also been getting to grips with new sports equipment installed in the town.

Locals and visitors to Pembroke’s Commons area can’t help to have noticed the installation of keep fit equipment. Step up, have a go…that’s what pupils from Class 3/4HG did recently. From swing steps, static cycling and other equipment they went on to keep fit activity circuits.

Pupils have also spent time exploring our local beaches, with an expedition to Lydstep to investigate the wildlife living on our shorelines.

They took time to release a stranded dog fish, a member of the shark family, from a tidal pool. Exploring rock pools and learning about the diverse ‘residents’ was also extremely popular.

Headteacher Andy Williams said: “We have a rich resource of places to visit on our doorstep. The recent explorations by the school have been central to building pupils' knowledge of the possibilities for exploring their local environment and gain an understanding of it.”
