Fern­hill school do their bit to help

Rutherglen Reformer - - News -

Pupils at Fern­hill school in Ruther­glen showed their Chris­tian side when they pooled forces with their lo­cal com­mu­nity to col­lect much needed cloth­ing for Syr­ian refugees.

The school, inspired by their S6 Char­ity pre­fect, Olivia McA­dams, joined the cam­paign launched by SCIAF and Glas­gow the Car­ing City, to send clothes to the Balkan re­gion for those refugees who have fled to the area from Syria.

Head teacher Dr Mur­phy, said: “I was over­whelmed by the ser­vant lead­er­ship demon­strated by Olivia in her quest for the school to help the peo­ple of Syria in their hour of need and equally de­lighted by the re­sponse our pupils and the lo­cal com­mu­nity made to the ap­peal.

“On the day over 150 bags of clothes were packed tightly into a transit van ready for their on­ward jour­ney to those in need. Fern­hill school is a rel­a­tively small school but once again we have shown that we have a huge heart.”
