Royal Highland EDUCATION Trust - Best in Class!
RHET aims to provide the opportunity for every child in Scotland to learn about food, farming and the countryside, and to create a wider understanding of the environmental, economic and social realities of rural Scotland.
The Royal Highland Education Trust (RHET) Children's Discovery Centre is based in Avenue Q of the showground. The centre is run by the Royal Highland Education Trust (RHET) and open to anyone and everyone, offering a range of fun, interactive and hands-on activities for children of all ages.

The RHET education programme is available to booked school and nursery groups, and offers:
Bookable education programme sessions
Educational drop-in activities
Curriculum-linked education packs
On arrival at the show, booked school groups are greeted by RHET staff and volunteers, who will ensure you find where you need to be as quickly as possible.
Groups have the option of a guided tour of the showground with one of our RHET volunteers and learn all about the different attractions, or head straight to the RHET Children's Discovery Centre to get stuck-in to your chosen activities. Our tours can be tailored to meet your specific needs, however there is no obligation to participate in RHET activities should groups wish to enter as a school party and follow their own programme.
RHET staff and volunteers are on hand to guide and assist with activities, and RHET are extremely grateful to their dedicated team of volunteers and activity providers who give up their time for education at the Royal Highland Show. Their expertise and enthusiasm is gladly shared with the children who visit the Rowett Institute of Nutrition and Health Discovery Centre, either as members of the public or in a school party.
