Highland Wildlife Park Taster Sessions.

Hello from RZSS,

We are delighted that a taster session of the Conservation Action Team (CAT) will be running at RZSS Highland Wildlife Park this October break (Tuesday October 22nd). This will be open to children aged between Primary 4 and Primary 7. We would like to offer the opportunity for children in surrounding schools to book on the HWP CAT Taster for free. If you can share this offer with parents, that would be greatly appreciated.

The Conservation Action Team (CAT) is all about having fun whilst learning about conservation. Members will work in a team and get their hands dirty to help local biodiversity on site at the Highland Wildlife Park. The 2-hour taster will include den building, animal surveying, campfires and more. The HWP CAT Taster is open to children between 7 and 11 years old and parents/guardians go free!

When booking a free space, there are two time slots to choose from: morning (10.30am-12.30am) and afternoon (1.30pm-3.30pm).

Parents must select either the morning or afternoon session to book a free ticket. Each ticket will allow entry for one child aged 7-11 and one free parent/guardian to accompany them.

There are limited spaces on each time slot, so in order to book, they can go to the link below. The booking page is password protected to allow booking only for parents who receive this email. When prompted, please enter HWPCAT2019 as the password. Please note this is case sensitive.

If there are any issues related to booking, or if there are any questions, please get in touch via email at

Kind regards

Cross Country – Thu Postponed

We have received this from the organisers of the Cross Country:

Unfortunately due to a number of factors we are going to have to postpone the SHSAA Cross-Country Championships on Thursday the 10th of October. Due to the wet weather and the Baxters event at the weekend the Bught Park is too wet and muddy for the event. It has been advised by the ground staff, committee officials and event organisers that it would be safer to postpone the event. We do not wish to risk the safety of any of our competitors.

The event will be rescheduled and will take place on THURSDAY the 31st of OCTOBER, arrangemenst should be the same.
