Pupils write a warm welcome to young Ukrainians arriving in Edinburgh

Many pupils from all year groups took part in a ‘Words of Welcome’ lunchtime letter-writing session, sending messages of hope, friendship and welcome to 48 young people arriving in the city from Dnipro in Ukraine. These will be displayed in the living areas of the young people’s new homes once they settle in Edinburgh.

Can you speak or write Ukrainian or Russian?           The charity Dnipro Kids is seeking assistance from speakers of Ukrainian and/ or Russian who could volunteer a couple of hours to help with translation and interpretation in the coming months. Please get in touch with Ailsa Stratton via the office or on Ailsa.Stratton@Boroughmuir.edin.sch.uk if you can help.
