“Today’s the day the teddy bears have their picnic,” and the teddy bears had their picnic, not at the woods, but at Maisondieu Nursey on Thursday, February 10.

The picnic was held by pupils from Brechin High School who have been involved in the Restorative Justice Programme which was run by the WEB Project.

The pupils held the event as a way to give something back to their community.

Sarah Brown, project worker for Angus Restorative Justice Service said: “Whilst doing the project the pupils have learned about how crime impacts the wider community and the consequences of committing offences.

“Through taking part, the girls have all commented on how they are now more aware of how crime affects the whole community.”

On the day of the picnic the girls from the High School prepared snacks for the nursery children, then they played games, sang songs and read a story to the nursery children.

“The children all seemed to have a really good time,” said Sarah.

“We would like to thank the Brechin Co-operative for donating the snacks and thanks to the staff from Maisondeiu Nursery for making us feel so welcome.”
