Digital Commonwealth / Young Scot Legacy Event

Three of our Digital Commonwealth team - Cari Wilde, Evan Robertson and DJ Bradley were invited down to The Shore to share their experiences of this project. The pupils got a chance to offer their ideas on how to engage young people over the themed events planned in Scotland over the next four years starting with the Year of Food and Drink in 2015 and culminating in Scotland’s Year of Young People in 2018. The pupils also received a Young Scot goody bag for taking part.

The Senior pupils were amongst 8000 pupils representing schools all over Scotland.  In the opening credits of the programme Amina Ibrahim and Alyx McIntosh were interviewed and asked their views on the Referendum Debate.  The platform representing both sides consisting of Patrick Harvie, Nicola Sturgeon, Ruth Davidson and George Galloway were certainly put through their paces.  The atmosphere in the arena was electric and the pupils of St Paul's had a fantastic day.
