Tracy Reid, Biology Teacher at Robert Gordon’s College said of this event:

“Thanks to one of our pupils donating his wormery to the Biology Department I have been able to spread the enthusiasm from the event throughout the Senior School.  All pupils are keen to find out what the worms feed on and what they are doing.  Thanks to Kenny’s tip to keep a black bag over the wormery there are always worms to be seen, busily decomposing the food scraps provided to them.”

Anisha B, Robert Gordon’s College P7 said of this event:

“I thought that the people from Hutton explained the wormery process really well.  I enjoyed working with my sister to make our very own wormery for our house.  It was a great afternoon.”

Jamie C, Robert Gordon’s College P7 said of this event:

My favourite part was holding the worms because they were so slimy and slippery.  My wormery at home is really exciting to watch.”

Thomas S, Robert Gordon’s College P7 said of this event:

“It was really cool learning about the different types of soil in Britiain and the different types of worms”. 

Samara McIntyre, Class Teacher at Robert Gordon’s College said of this event:

“We were very grateful to be given this exciting learning opportunity. The children thoroughly enjoyed the lesson and they were proud to take their wormery home.  We would like to thank the staff at Hutton for all their hard work and support.”
