We have a rich and varied programme for schools – two programmes indeed, one for primary and one for secondary. It’s thanks to the many organisations and individuals who have kindly provided funding for the various activities to come to Orkney and visit schools with no charge.
The programmes have been sent out earlier this spring to all the Orkney schools and many bookings have come in.
In addition, schools are able to access Festival talks without charge. We just need to know in advance to make sure that there is space available. Talks cover a wide range of subjects, some in the curriculum and others related to it in one way or another.
There is also material of interest for schools as well as people of varied ages in our online magazine, Frontiers.
