Merchiston Castle School are the latest to sponsor a giraffe sculpture as part of Edinburgh Zoo’s large scale public art trail.  

Giraffe About Town will see over 40 eight-foot-tall giraffe sculptures displayed across Edinburgh and then later auctioned to raise funds vital to support the Royal Zoological Society of Scotland’s wildlife conservation work in Scotland and around the world.  

Merchiston’s pupils hold strong feelings about how we can all take action to slow the impact of climate change, so they are thrilled to support the trail. They have launched a new Sustainability Committee and are taking action by undertaking research and proposing improvements to ensure there are sustainable practices across the school.  These younger generations are determined to take action to ensure that they can really make a difference!.
