LUSS PRIMARY SCHOOL WINS SCOTTISH TOTAL GREEN SCHOOL AWARD
Luss Primary School have won the 2016 Scottish Regional Total Green School Award for their continued work to save the Powan of Loch Lomond.
Over the past few years, the children have been rearing Powan eggs in the school and releasing them when they are Alvins so they are safe from being eaten by the non-native Ruffe fish which are in Loch Lomond. The Powan are one of the most endangered species in the UK and to date, the children have been able to raise 600 fish to be added to the population of the Loch. These fish also play an essential part in the Loch's Eco-System.
The children will travel to London to receive their award at London Zoo on Thursday the 16th of June and find out if they have won the prize for the whole of the UK when they are there.
