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
