Coasting along

Talking of the Western Isles, we note that monitoring performance takes on a different meaning in some of its schools. At Seilibost Primary in Harris, coastal movements have led to "three blow holes in the dunes which will give weakness in the dune system for further erosion", a report somewhat infelicitously informed councillors last week.

At Lionacleit Secondary in the Uists, there have been 14 land surveys to monitor coastal erosion. There, the dunes face not blow holes but rabbits burrowing incessantly.

As if schools did not have enough erosion to contend with - but it makes a change from boring old pedagogy.
