Article by Pam Rodway on the project in Shetland for Landwise in the Shetland Times.

My visit to Crofting Connections schools in Shetland in February was a refreshing reminder of how enthusiastically pupils, teachers and crofters have engaged with the project. The first four schools, Baltasound Junior High, Whalsay Junior High, Burravoe Primary and Dunrossness Primary are now in their second year of the project, while two new schools, Urafirth Primary and Cullivoe Primary, joined in August 2010. The schools show that Crofting Connections can provide a framework for the delivery of Curriculum for Excellence in very small primaries as well as larger ones, and in all classes from nursery to S4 in the junior high schools.
