Camphill School Aberdeen today welcomed Liam Kerr MSP, the Scottish Conservative and Unionist Party’s Shadow Cabinet Secretary for Justice, on a visit to the school.
The visit gave Liam Kerr MSP, who represents the North East of Scotland Region, an opportunity to meet staff, and some of the children and young people attending Camphill School Aberdeen, and to receive an update about the work of the school. Liam Kerr MSP also heard concerns about the potential impact of Brexit upon Camphill School Aberdeen, and upon the other Camphill communities in Scotland.
Martin Alfred, the Manager at Cairnlee House, Camphill School Aberdeen, said:
It was a great pleasure to welcome Liam Kerr MSP to Camphill School Aberdeen. Liam had the opportunity to meet some of the young people and international volunteers at the School, and was given an introduction to Camphill in Scotland.
We deeply appreciate Liam’s support for our work at Camphill School Aberdeen, which is supporting children and young people with learning disabilities and other support needs to fulfill their potential, and to make the most of their lives.
Following his visit to Camphill School Aberdeen, Liam Kerr MSP said:
I was delighted to have been offered the chance to tour the Camphill School campus in Aberdeen and see first-hand the fantastic work that goes on here.
The school has a long and proud history in this city and it is easy to see that it provides a positive learning environment for all who attend.
Parents clearly feel that their children benefit hugely from the attention and expertise of the specialist team of staff and the genuine sense of community here at Camphill.
Dr Neil Henery, Camphill Scotland’s Director, said:
I was delighted to meet with Liam Kerr MSP today and really appreciated his support for Camphill’s inclusive community-based approach to care and education. We were able to show him the amazing contribution made by the many European and international volunteers to the care and education provided at Camphill School Aberdeen. We are very glad of his support in helping us maintain these vital international connections during the current uncertainty over Brexit.
