Releasing Trout in to Ballinderry River

 

Our P7 pupils have been involved in the Ballinderry River Trust's Trout in the Classroom programme. This involved setting up a small trout hatchery in the classroom for the past 5 weeks and this allowed the children to monitor the water conditions daily and to watch the trout eggs hatch. Today they visited the Ballinderry River to investigate the water quality and to finally release the fish into the wild. It was a most enjoyable afternoon, well done P7!
