November*


This year, I am working in two properties of National Trust for Scotland - as a gallery guide in Charlotte Square, and also an environmental educator in Newhailes.
Apart from designing an activity sheet/brochure for kids, I need to help with organizing school visits in Newhailes.
Today a group of fifth grader came, they learnt about autumn, we played a few games, that introduced birds migration and mushrooms (fungi) The kids here and at this age are so eager! so different from HK kids, really interesting to observe. Playing games with Children is totally like back to SB... I am like being a FT
