Motion text

That this House congratulates the pupils of Colgrain Primary School in Helensburgh who raised £4,722 for UNICEF’s Ukraine Appeal by taking part in a sponsored walk around the school’s grounds; notes that pupils from every class participated in the event, with the youngest nursery-school pupils walking two-and-a-half miles, those in P1 to P3 each covering five miles, while pupils in P4 to P7 walked 10 miles each; notes that the pupils were moved to help their Ukrainian counterparts after seeing distressing images of the effect the war was having on Ukraine’s young people; and thanks head teacher Pauline Walsh and all her staff for organising the event and, as a UNICEF Rights Respecting School, for all they do in putting the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child into practice within the school, giving the pupils of Colgrain Primary School the best chance to lead happy, healthy school lives and to become responsible, active citizens.
