A Resource for Education

Dragonflies at Sun RisingSun Rising is such a special project: there are pockets of land being preserved, field margins now widened and canal paths or churchyards better managed for wildlife, but seldom is a nature reserve nowadays created from scratch.

As part of our social ethos, it is important for us to offer the project out to the community so that it can be used as a valuable educational resource. This is true for

  • primary schools, looking at the natural world
  • secondary schools, for biology or philosophy
  • tertiary colleges and universities, for more indepth studies.

For primary school groups, we can provide worksheets for children to identify simple habitats or species.

For school or college groups interested in philosophy or business, we are happy to meet and talk with students looking at death and dying, religious and non-religious beliefs, and ethics and ethical business.

If you are a teacher or course organiser interested in bringing a group to Sun Rising, or you are a student interested in incorporated Sun Rising into your studies, do let us know.
