An event to showcase all aspects of country living - including farming, animals and food production, traditional countryside skills and pursuits - is being put on for all Primary Five aged children in the Scottish Borders.
The event, which is the first of its kind in Scotland, is being put on by the Border Union Agricultural Society - with help from the Scottish Borders Council and local Co-operative farms.
"This event is a major undertaking and we are set to welcome over 1300 pupils and their teachers all on the same day and offer them an educational insight into the amazing diversity of the countryside.
"The children will have the chance to take part in activities such as haggis making and egg grading, see sheep dogs and farriers at work, witness a host of countryside skills demonstrations, and meet representatives from 50 different organisations all linked to the area we live in.
"It is a key element of our bicentenary events programme as we endeavor to ensure our celebrations create a lasting legacy for future generations."
"This is an incredible opportunity for children in the Scottish Borders to learn about and engage with the countryside.
"The Show fits with a number of aspects of the curriculum so has a valuable educational element as well as providing the children with what I am sure will be an exceptionally enjoyable day out."
