On Tuesday the 8th March 2011 the school hosted a “Living Case Study Event” for Learning and Teaching Scotland (LTS). Delegates (primary and secondary teachers and representatives from Eco Schools and the Scottish Government) came from all over Scotland to learn from Portobello about their journey through the Eco Schools Programme.
The day long event involved presentations from staff, pupils and community representatives, as well as a chance to see our biodiversity garden and have an informal chat with former pupils about the impact Eco Schools has had on their life choices and experiences.
The event was a great success with lots of positive feedback from delegates and the LTS Global Citizenship team. Many resources from the school are now posted on Glow and are part of a new Sustainable Development Education resource on the LTS website.
