Pupils at an East Renfrewshire school are starring in a new video which highlights their efforts to help protect the environment.

Organisers of the Clyde in the Classroom project invited youngsters from Braidbar Primary, in Giffnock, to spread the word about how it is helping children take a keen interest in nature.

Each year, thousands of pupils at schools from across the River Clyde catchment area raise and release brown trout into the river system.

Braidbar Primary is one of the schools which has taken part, with children releasing the fish they raised into the White Cart Water.

The new video has been made available by Crown Estate Scotland, which funded Clyde in the Classroom to help protect and enhance the ecology of the river.

In it, pupils explain how the project has inspired them to do more to help in their local area.

Clyde in the Classroom provides practical learning opportunities for children as they monitor fish development, calculate what they need to keep fish healthy and record their own experiences.

Having the responsibility of caring for the trout also helps to inspire an interest in the environment.

During the Covid-19 pandemic, Clyde in the Classroom adapted to conditions to ensure that, through a mix of in-classroom and online experiences, children still had the opportunity to help raise brown trout, learn about their lifecycle and release them back into the wild.

Feedback from the schools involved suggests the project meant a lot to the young people who took part.

As part of the 2023 programme, thousands of pupils were invited to a special gathering at the Glasgow Science Centre.
