There are now nearly 5,000 schools involved in this year’s Send My Sister to School Campaign. Is your school one of them? If so let us know.

One of the school’s involved is George Heriot’s School in Edinburgh. They had a visit by their MP Sheila Gilmore earlier this month on Thursday 2nd June. Whilst at the school Sheila received images that the S1 pupils had made over a 3 week period.

S1 (year 11 equivalent) watched the films and completed activities from the Send my sister to school website and then made the images that were presented to Sheila Gilmore.

You can also read more stories about what schools have been up to.
