Get involved with Giraffe About Town!

Join the herd this summer to learn about giraffes, get crafty and explore our tall trail around the streets of Edinburgh!

This large scale public event is taking place this summer, where our eight-foot giraffes will be displayed at iconic spots across Edinburgh. Supported by Essential Edinburgh, schools can join the ‘wee herd’ of 20 smaller giraffes as part of the trail. Each four-foot-tall sculpture will be designed and decorated by pupils from Edinburgh schools.

Giraffe About Town School programme launch at Corstorphine Primary with p3b students Elouise, Holly, Jack and Kayal

Mix and match ideas from our school resources to create a terrifically tall theme day for your class or whole school. You can explore ideas for planning, before the big day, a giraffe-load of whole schoolclass and individual activities for your theme day, and ways to go beyond a single day too!

The full programme of school resources are now available on our website.
