Another school in the Wealden area has joined the High Weald Heroes education scheme which encourages children to explore their surrounding landscape.
St Mark's Primary School, Hadlow Down, has signed up and pledged to help the children meet the five actions of the High Weald Heroes scheme: to Find Out About, Take Care Of, Be Proud Of, Explore and Enjoy their local High Weald landscape.
This brings the number of Wealden schools involved the scheme to 13. The total number of schools involved across the High Weald now stands at 55.
High Weald Heroes is an educational and interpretive programme that is run and managed by the High Weald AONB Unit to encourage young people to learn more about nature and the environment.
“The High Weald Heroes Scheme helps teachers to get children out of the classroom and learn about the historic landscape they live in, which is one of the best preserved medieval landscapes in northern Europe," said Councillor Pam Doodes, Cabinet member for Community. "Wealden District Council is proud to be supporting this work."
The High Weald Heroes scheme offers children a wide-range of 'pick and mix' activities that includes themed assemblies, workshops and field trips, allowing them to explore important features and historical evidence in their local landscape.
