Pupil project boosted by East Scotland’s donation
12 December 2023
Braes High School in Falkirk has received £6,000 from our East Scotland team.
Staff and students at Braes High School are celebrating after banking a bumper donation as one of Persimmon East Scotland’s Community Champions.
The Pupil Voice initiative at Braes High School has seen students shape their school in a way that empowers them to learn in the best possible environment. Following the recent success of fundraising to install a polytunnel and pergola to modernise their outdoor area, the students have set their sights on the inside of the school.
The funding will be used to support students’ ambitions to modernise aspects of the building with features such as wall murals and wraps to bring indoor spaces to life.
Jillian Shaw, Deputy Headteacher at Braes High School, said:
“We are always incredibly proud of our young people and the pride they take in their school community and environment.
“We extend our gratitude to Persimmon Homes for their support with this pupil-led project and look forward to showcasing their creative developments in the new year.”
Neil Parry, East Scotland region Managing Director, said:
“We are delighted to support Braes High School with funding for their Pupil Voice initiative, which has already had a positive impact on the school.
“Pupils and staff deserve a huge amount of credit for the work they’re doing and I hope this donation will help them to successfully deliver the next stage of their project.”
