St Charles’ Primary School’s pioneering project in running for major boost

North Kelvinside project shortlisted in the UK Schools category of the One Family Foundation’s Community Awards, seeks community support across Glasgow and beyond

St Charles’ Primary School in North Kelvinside is celebrating as its planned project to build a multi-sensory room for their language and communications unit is in the running for a major boost.

The school has been shortlisted in the UK school category of the One Family Foundation’s Community Awards. If successful, the school would win £25,000 towards converting an unused classroom into a modern multi-sensory room. The room would allow pupils from the school’s language unit to recover from stressful situations during school hours within the room.

The project is currently fourth in the leader board of all school projects, and St Charles’ parents are calling on Catholics throughout Glasgow to help them win the award.

“These children face severe challenges in school and often struggle to cope socially and emotionally,” Lizanne Conway, whose son is in Primary 2 at the school, said. “The hard work has only begun and we now need to rally huge levels of public support to win.”
