YOUNGSTERS in Peterhead stopped by their local opticians on Wednesday to find out all about the eye.

Children at Meethill Nursery are learning about the senses as part of their latest project so teachers organised a trip to Specsavers, Marischal Street.

As well as a tour of the store, the 14 children were told how the eye works and why it’s important to take care of them. The staff also spoke about eye examinations and the children were able to see the equipment optometrists use. Peterhead store director John Watson said: ‘It was our pleasure to welcome the nursery into store today and I hope the children enjoyed themselves. It is so important to ensure children are aware of how important their sight is and we were thrilled to get involved in the senses project. “

Julie Curtis, Meethill Nursery teacher, said: “The children had a wonderful time at Specsavers. We greatly appreciated the time staff spent in making sure they had a valuable and meaningful learning experience.”
