CASTLE KENNEDY PUPILS WIN CITIZENSHIP AWARD

CARING pupils from Castle Kennedy Primary School have won their school £1500 for their work with the Thorney Croft Care Home in Stranraer.

The Primary Seven pupils came out on top of a 'Let's Celebrate Citizenship' national competition run by Grampian Police which attracted entries from 60 schools throughout Scotland.

And they have decided to use part of their prize money to buy their friends at the care home a new picture.

The pupils, who have developed links with the members at Thorney Croft over a period of time now created biographies after conducting interviews with day care members.

And the eight biographies which were submitted to the competition proved to be a winner with the judges.

The pupils will travel to Stirling University today (Thursday) where they will make a presentation on their prize-winning project in the presence of a number of speakers, including the Grampian Police Chief Constable Andrew Brown.

Headteacher Margie Ferguson said:

"The pupils are absolutely delighted and can not wait to go to Stirling now.

"They have decided to buy a picture for the Thorney Croft members with the prize money and will also fund part of the school trip to Belfast".
