Motion text

That this House expresses support for St Charles' Primary School in Glasgow and its Keep Calm St Charles campaign; notes that this campaign aims to refurbish a disused Victorian classroom and transform it into a multi-sensory environment for the benefit of all pupils of St Charles' Language and Communication Unit and Primary School; recognises that this sensory room will aid the positive development of all pupils, but especially those who are experiencing challenges that may hinder learning; understands that this resource will provide a safe haven for children who are suffering from sensory overload enabling them to take time out to calm down during the day rather than reach breaking point in class or at home after school; appreciates that this will help prevent children having to be sent home and avoid them missing out on the rest of the school day; congratulates the fundraising committee and all those involved in the recent fundraising activities which have raised almost £7,000 towards the refurbishment; wishes the campaign every success in its recent funding applications; and hopes that it will soon reach its funding target and turn this project into a reality for all pupils at St Charles' Primary School.
