Scottish Learners’ Panel Meeting

Sam Clarke (S3), Inver Petrie (S3), Orla Crofts (S2) and Molly Urquhart (S1) all travelled with Miss Fulton today to participate in a Scottish Learners’ Panel Meeting at the Glasgow Gaelic school.

The panel aims to strengthen the pupil voice in the development of national Education policy and practice.  The pupils attended the launch of the panels earlier alongside Deputy First Minister John Swinney MSP.
