The event is part of the Unicef UK Rights Respecting Schools Award (RRSA), which aims to support schools to embed children's human rights in their ethos and culture. The award recognises achievement in putting the UN Convention on the Right of the Child (UNCRC) at the heart of a school’s practice to improve well-being and help all children realise their potential.
Commenting on the visit, Mark said:
"I was delighted to be at the wonderful new Brimmond Primary School today for their Rights Respecting Schools coffee morning.
"The pupils gave a fantastic presentation on the work they have done to make Brimmond a Rights Respecting School and I was given a tour of the school alongside Councillors Gill Samarai & Neil MacGregor. I would like to thank P6 pupils Arsen & Amelia for taking the time to show us round and answer all of our questions about the school.
"It's a fantastic facility and everyone at the school, from teachers, to pupils, to members of the community who were also at the coffee morning, were so enthusiastic about the building and how much they are enjoying teaching and learning in the building and having such a state of the art facility in the community."
