No to sectarianism

Primary and secondary pupils throughout South Lanarkshire have been devising campaigns on how they can challenge sectarianism in their schools.

In a competition organised by Education Resources, they were asked to make the anti-sectarian message a reality in their schools. Primary teams were made up of three to five P6-7 pupils, who had to give a five to 10-minute presentation using PowerPoint. Teams from individual schools made presentations to their pupil councils, who then picked an entry to represent their school. The final was held at South Lanarkshire Council's headquarters last week, where the primary finalists were Blackwood, St John's, St Leonard's and St Kenneth's primaries. The winner was St Kenneth's. (The secondary winner was Earnock High.)
