Nae Straw At Aw – Sunnyside Ocean Defenders

“We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors; we borrow it from our children.”

Who we are

Sunnyside School of Conservation is a Glasgow City Council establishment in the east end of Glasgow in Scotland. We are an inner city school but are fortunate enough to have Hogganfield Park and Cardown Moss on our doorstep. Our school came up with the #NaeStrawAtAw campaign.

What we do

What makes Sunnyside a bit different is that we are a School of Conservation. From joining us in Primary One, our pupils are involved in developing skills and embarking on adventures based around exploring and protecting nature. Our journey started in 2014 and we are excited at the continuing twists and turns in the path we’re forging as we stride onwards.

Getting Involved

Our ethos is to engage our pupils and the Sunnyside Family in nature including joining in with activities aimed at protecting our natural environment or where needs be, initiating our own campaigns designed and led by our young people. We are also fortunate to have support and guidance from many wonderful conservation organisations here in Scotland.
