Scottish Learning Festival
The European Parliament Office in Scotland participated for the fourth consecutive year at the annual Scottish Learning Festival at the SECC in Glasgow on 22-23 September 2010. This year saw an estimated 6400 visitors to the Festival, an increase of 14% on last year's figures, and the European Parliament was delighted to respond to questions from nearly 200 teachers, both from the primary and secondary sectors on specific issues such as how the European Parliament's educational resources can be applied to the Scottish curriculum and ways and means of how to bring Europe into the Scottish classroom. Grace and Vera from the European Parliament illustrated the European Parliament's latest educational resource
for secondary students entitled 'Crisis Point' and also encouraged Primary School teachers to arrange for their pupils to enter the European Parliament's Calendar Competition, a brand new initiative which has been enthusiastically embraced by many primary school pupils all over Scotland.
Teachers were delighted to receive updated and new European Parliament educational resources and were keen to sign up for the soon to be launched new Primary School Teachers Resource Pack, due to be launched before the end of the year.
