Capturing the Spirit of Learning and Tradition - Young Minds Embrace Drystone Walling

EDITORS COMMENTS
. In this photo print, we witness a heartwarming scene where eight and nine-year-old students from Highburton First School embark on an extraordinary outdoor learning experience. Leaving behind their cozy classrooms, these enthusiastic children venture into the windswept moors above Slaithwaite to immerse themselves in the ancient art of drystone walling. Accompanied by skilled teenagers from Colne Valley High School, who have already mastered the techniques of this rural craft, as well as their dedicated teacher Mr. Paul Webley and Master Craftsman Mr. Kenneth France, these young learners are eager to absorb every aspect of constructing sturdy walls using only stones. The image beautifully captures fifteen-year-old Kae Mann passing on her newfound knowledge to Jenny Pickup (9) and Lisa Clarke (10), showcasing how intergenerational collaboration fosters growth and preserves traditional skills. This snapshot not only highlights the importance of hands-on education but also emphasizes the value placed upon preserving age-old traditions within our communities. It serves as a reminder that education extends beyond classroom walls, encouraging children to explore nature's wonders while gaining practical skills that will undoubtedly shape their futures. As we delve into this nostalgic 1980s photograph, it evokes feelings of admiration for these determined youngsters embracing construction with bricks and stones while fostering camaraderie amidst picturesque surroundings—a testament to both their resilience and thirst for knowledge.
