Pupils at Crimond School received a special surprise recently thanks to oil and gas firm Apache.

The school was given a pop-up classroom from Apache as part of the Link School Programme they have which sees the company support Crimond and St Fergus schools.

The outdoor classroom was delivered by the Grounds for Learning team who showed both pupils and teachers how to set up the new equipment as well as giving them advice on the various ways it can be used.

School head teacher Hilda Creighton said: “We are really grateful to Apache for giving us this pop-up classroom as we know that getting something like this is expensive.

“We are glad that Apache supports learning in the local area.”

She added: “The pupils are more engaged with their learning when they are outside and I think this new classroom is good for their motivation.

“Our school play leaders have learned how to put the classroom up so the pupils can use it at break times.

“We will also use it for various classes including literacy, drama and storytelling.”
