It was a chance for pupils to speak to MSPs about the work they are do­ing at the school, how pupils have linked their projects to the UN Sus­tain­able De­vel­op­ment Goals and have used op­por­tu­ni­ties such as the Real Deal Busi­ness Chal­lenge to high­light lo­cal is­sues, in­clud­ing lit­ter left on the West Highland Way.

The pupils also spoke about their work with UNICEF and their jour­ney to­wards be­com­ing a Rights Re­spect­ing School.
