First class education at Camphill School Aberdeen
Following his recent visit to Camphill School Aberdeen’s Cairnlee House, Liam Kerr MSP, the Scottish Conservative and Unionist Party’s Shadow Cabinet Secretary for Justice, has tabled a Motion in the Scottish Parliament highlighting the work of Camphill School Aberdeen and of Cairnlee House.
Liam Kerr MSP, who represents the North East of Scotland Region, met staff, and some of the children and young people attending Camphill School Aberdeen, during his visit. His Motion commends the “first-class education, care and therapy for children and young people with additional support needs” delivered by Cairnlee House and by Camphill School Aberdeen.
Martin Alfred, the Manager at Cairnlee House, Camphill School Aberdeen, said:
We are grateful for Liam’s visit to Cairnlee, Camphill School Aberdeen in August. He showed great interest in the support that we provide, was supportive of our work and had the opportunity to meet and speak with young people, international volunteers and staff. We appreciate the cross party support for his parliamentary motion commending our work.
Liam Kerr MSP’s Motion has attracted cross-party support.
Congratulations to Tigh a’Chomainn on green funding award
Liam Kerr has also lodged a parliamentary Motion to request that the Scottish Parliament congratulates Tigh a’Chomainn for being awarded funding from Vattenfall’s Unlock our Future Fund, and on the contribution the community is making to “enable more people to access the benefits of the wider community as part of Scotland’s drive towards a greener, more sustainable future”.
The Motion has also attracted cross-party support.
Dr Neil Henery, Camphill Scotland’s Director, said:
We warmly welcome the two Motions lodged by Liam Kerr MSP, and are grateful to all of the MSPs who have supported the Motions. It means a lot to the Camphill communities Tigh a’Chomainn and Camphill School Aberdeen/Cairnlee to have their wonderful work recognised in this way.
