Pupils at Luing Primary School have been learning about how to create a sustainable future through the United Nations Global Goals.

The Global Goalsaddress the global challenges everyone faces, including those related to poverty, inequality, climate change, environmental degradation, peace and justice.

To coincide with this project,Dave Alsop from Seed for Life went along to the school to talk to the children about the vital work the charity does to help people in Malawi.

The pupils were so inspired by the work that Seed for Life does, they decided to donate £375 to the charity. This was money that had previously been raised by pupils at a community event in the school, and will enable at least one child in Malawi to attend high school for four years.

Argyll and Bute Council’s Policy Lead for Education, Councillor Yvonne McNeilly, said: “What thoughtful, caring young people we have here in Argyll and Bute.

“These pupils are part of a generation of children that can make a vital difference to the world we live in, so it’s important that they’re fully aware of the challenges we face now and in the future.

“I think it’s clear that Luing Primary is on the right path to doing this and I wish the children lots of luck as their learning about the Global Goals continues.”
