Mearns Academy’s Wee Hop design focuses on resilience in nature. As a school we wanted to showcase the resilience of our local wildlife and the ways in which we engage with nature. Mearns Academy cares for several beehives and delivers a qualification in Bee Keeping. Pupils and staff have voted on a design that highlights and explores this through learner’s artwork. Our hare sculpture has been designed and created by a team of S1-3 pupils, incorporating some details from a wider school community.
