Learning to repair nets and splice rope (videos)

Local Retired Fishermen, Mr Gilbert Farquhar and Mr Mike Ralph kindly came into school to teach the children how to repair fishing nets and splice ropes as a way of joining them or making a loop.The children then had an opportunity to have a go themselves. They were very successful. See their net mending photos below.

The camera person was P5/6 Class member Jack Sim

“I liked when Gilbert Farquhar and Mike Ralph came in to show us how to mend nets. I learnt how to mend the nets. It was hard but I did it”  Ross P5/6
