Glasgow is a very multicultural city and welcomes people from all over the world , who now call this beautiful city their home. However, not all of the people moving to Glasgow find it easy to adjust to the language and the different way of life and face many challenges.
The students of the Strathclyde Business School aim to help some of these people to have the best life possible in this vibrant and diverse city.
Annette Street Primary is a school located in the heart of Govanhill, which is considered to be the most ethically diverse area in Glasgow. This is also reflected in the pupils attending Annette Street Primary, as most of their families come from Eastern Europe. The students at Annette Street face many unique challenges compared to other schools in Glasgow ,as often the children have lower English skills, are new to education or come from relatively poor families.
The teachers at Annette Street dedicate a lot of hard work to the school and helping the children achieve the best education, so it is from great importance to let them know they have the support from the community in Glasgow.
Raising money for the school can help them to provide new resources to enhance the learning environment as well as improving the communication skills of the children. This can help the pupils improve their social and language skills to ensure a brighter future and give them the same opportunities as everyone else.
We appreciate any contribution, as even small amounts can mean a big difference to the wee people of Annette Street Primary!
Here are some ideas of what the money can be used for:
1.) £10 would help buy reference books for the new library which can help the children improve their English skills.
£10 can also be used for entrance fees to the zoo, safari park or farm park for the very disadvantaged children who could not pay that themselves, this would be a great end of term trip and help them learn about the environment.
2.) £20 would help the school buy a whole school uniform for some of the most disadvantaged children, whose family could not afford that.
£20 could also be used to buy ingredients for a class picnic which can help the children learn about healthy eating and take on a trip to the park for outdoor learning.
3.) £50 could buy pencils, pads and pens to allow a class of children to do homework at home as many of kids don't have funds to buy these things themselves.
4.) £150-£180 can be used to fund a bus for outdoor educational trips which would give the children the opportunity to learn outside the school and also give them the chance to see more of Scotland, as many families cannot afford to take their children on trips.
5.) £500-£1000 can be used towards the renovation of a new school library in the old janitor’s house and to buy new books. Many of the children do not own books of their own and this can be a space where they can read to improve their English skills and learn more about the value of reading and books for their future.
