RIMG0026The The Exhibition of the posters the primary school children of the community produced in support of the campaign opened yesterday evening.  It was brilliant. 

I had spent all week worrying that nobody would turn-up, despite having sent out approximately 100 invitations.  As it was, we had about 80 present, which was just perfect for the size of the venue, and today there has been a steady stream of visitors, and we hope the same will happen tomorrow.

Maureen Watt, MSP, [who also happens to be Minister for Skills & Schools] formally opened the exhibition and gave out the prizes – a winner and two runners-up for each of the six schools.  She obviously has a good relationship with the Heads and Teachers in the local schools and, I could see, that they were absolutely thrilled that she had taken the time to come and see the effort their children had put into supporting the campaign. 

In her speech Maureen commented on how good it was to see the children participating in environmental projects.  She mentioned having recently visited Banchory Primary P2/3 and congratulated them on their success in the Total Total Green Award [mentioned below].

Our Overall Winner was Fergus Upton, Aged 6, from Durris Primary School. Congratulations to Fergus [who, most unfortunately, was ill last night and his prize and certificate will be presented to him at School Assembly on Monday].  His poster is pictured above.
