- Pupils at Banchory Primary in Tullibody, Clackmannanshire, have completed a family dog walk event as part of a project to develop skills. Children did their own risk assessment and used Ordnance Survey maps to plan the safest route that they thought dogs would enjoy. The school plans to make the event a staple part of its health and well-being work.
