Callander Youth Project Wildlife Weekend programme

CYP Wildlife Weekend programme takes place every Sunday for 6 weeks beginning April 24th. This link contains more information on each individual activity session as well the sign up process.

The programme is open to any young person from P6 to S3 however an enthusiasm for animals is recommended given the nature of the block. Following feedback from the previous weekend block, parents/guardians can sign young people up for individual sessions and are not required to sign up for the entire block. There are limited spaces available therefore we will open the sign-up window until 10pm on Monday 18th April before randomly allocating spaces based on drawing names – we hope this gives everyone a fair chance of involvement. We will notify everyone who has been assigned a space some point on Tuesday 19th April.

Children’s Book Festival 3rd-5th March 2022

From Stirling Council.

Families will have the opportunity to enjoy a fun and diverse programme of events and activities as a popular children’s book festival returns to Stirling next week.

Organised by Stirling Council’s Libraries Service, ‘smallprint’ is a three-day celebration of children’s literature day that gets underway on World Book Day on Thursday 3rd March.

Visits to schools from some top children’s authors, a hands-on digital event, fun-filled creative workshops, pre-recorded virtual stories and Bookbug live sessions all feature in this year’s exciting programme.

The festival was entirely online last year due to the pandemic but the easing of restrictions means a welcome return to some in-person events alongside the digital offerings.

The in-person events include a digital takeover at Bannockburn Library with fun drop-in activities including Lego animation, VR art, 3D printing and gadget making, along with a visit from children’s author Jo Hall to St Ninians Library, who will share the ‘idea sets’ she created for her character JoJo Gnome.

Among the digital activities is an online workshop with Stirling’s award-winning Makar Laura Fyfe, who will encourage children to find their poem in the same way she does: from the sparkly glimmers of inspiration we have around us all the time.

Each day will end with a bedtime story at 7pm on Facebook.

Author visits to schools are for an invited audience only. Others are bookable under the ‘What’s On’ section of www.YourStirling.com and all are free of charge.
