As we are all aware, the spotlight is currently on Glasgow as COP26 takes place in the hope of addressing the climate emergency.
This year according to the UN, there seems to be ‘a unique urgency’.
With COP26 being so prominent, perhaps it has made us all think about things we could be doing a bit differently to help alleviate our impact on the environment. It can feel overwhelming and a lot of us are at a loss at what to do and where to start. Clarkston Community Council thought that if we could each try to do even one thing
a bit differently, any change may feel more effective if it can happen as part of a community wide climate pledge. So to help get us started, we have arranged a series of 4 free workshops to help us all
understand what the issues are as they relate to us as individuals and how we can best address them. The workshops will be given by Home Energy Scotland, which is a Scottish Government Programme. They will take place at 7.30 p.m. on Monday evenings at Greenback Church Hall. You are welcome to attend one or all of the workshops.
We also hope to create an information and resource library, with general resources but also local initiatives, businesses and resources which are relevant to anyone living in Clarkston.
If you would like to attend any of the workshops, , please let us know by the Saturday before by commenting below, dropping us a message or e-mailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org

We are moving onto block two of our support groups. These support groups are designed to help build confidence, manage anxiety and improve resilience. There are also groups that would help with social and emotional interaction.
Our support groups promote our school values of Fairness, Ambition, Integrity, Respect and Responsibility.

Please make sure you have a discussion with your child before signing them up to any group, so that they are in agreement to signing up.
