We are delighted that we currently have more than 30 East Lothian Primary 5 classes booked to visit John Muir’s Birthplace during this academic year as part of the John Muir Project. Each year East Lothian Council Arts Service sponsors all Primary 5 Classes in the county to undertake the project as part of their Citizenship curriculum. The project includes drama and dance elements exploring John Muir’s life in addition to work with the Countryside Ranger Service in an area close to the School, and a visit to John Muir’s Birthplace to further promote understanding of his life and legacy.
As well as the East Lothian Schools, John Muir’s Birthplace also plays host to several John Muir Award Groups and Schools from outwith the county. During the 2016/17 academic year we welcomed more than 1500 pupils and students, who all went away enthused to find out more about John Muir and how they can keep his legacy alive.
If you are interested in bringing a group of any kind to John Muir’s Birthplace please have a look at the Group and School sections of our website, or email firstname.lastname@example.org with your specific requirements. Book up for this academic year by Christmas 2017, please note we now only have very limited availability in April, May and June.
