The City of Edinburgh Council – Future Schools Project Award 2019 Winner Announced by The Deputy First Minister and Cabinet Secretary for Education and Skills

Time: 13:00 - 13:15

Date: 27-Nov-2019

Synopsis

Learner voice is very important to the City of Edinburgh Council so we developed a competition through our Future Schools Project to ask our learners how they would improve their learning environments.

We will be exhibiting the five finalists’ entries for the Future Schools Project Award competition, which aims to promote learners as designers of their own learning environments. This competition was open to all City of Edinburgh Council nurseries and schools. Learners were asked to design a space in their school or nursery that would improve teaching and learning, inclusivity and wellbeing.

The finalists are Broughton High, Corstorphine Primary, St Cuthbert’s RC Primary, St John Vianney RC Primary and Murrayburn Primary and you can have your say as voting takes place on day one of the conference, with the winner being announced on the Keynote Stage.

Excitingly, we’ll be working with our development partner, Hub South East to make the winners’ dream a reality. The City of Edinburgh Council has worked with Hub South East over the last 9 years to create fantastic new learning spaces across Edinburgh and now the winners will have this experienced team and its supply chain help bring their ideas to life as the winning design is taken though a Junior Hub process to develop the ideas from concept through to delivery in their school.

Please come to stand G20, talk to the learners, see their designs and cast your vote by 12pm. The entries will be exhibited for the entire conference to showcase the learners’ hard work, research and informed designs.
