CASTLE KENNEDY PUPILS WIN CITIZENSHIP AWARD
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
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
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
Margie Ferguson said:
are absolutely delighted and
can not wait to go to Stirling now.
