Some of our pupils attended the recent national launch of the strategic partnership with Young Scot and Scottish Government. This Scottish Attainment Challenge project will see Youth Services working with partners to target young people, reducing barriers, opening up opportunities to connect, access, and experience learning and health and wellbeing activities.
Fiona Taylor, Youth Services Manager, commented "All the young people who attended were fantastic on the day – a real credit to your school, and to Renfrewshire. They introduced our VIP guests from Scottish Government, Young Scot, Transport Scotland, the Improvement Service, our local senior managers, neighbouring local authorities and Renfrewshire’s Young People Champion to the Deputy First Minister. They facilitated, led on activities, gave speeches, and were able to feedback their views on how to create solutions to some of the problems faced by their peers, across Scotland."
