Back in September of this year Tiree High School received £916 from The Windfall Fund to allow the S5 & 6 pupils to attend ‘Scotland decides, BBC televised referendum debate’ a debate in Glasgow. The pupils all had a brilliant time away and helped them to understand both sides of the argument. Here are a few quotes from some of the pupils that attended.
Bobbie Smith – It gave me a better understanding of the issues
Kathleen MacKinnon – I was undecided before I went to the debate and it helped me make up my mind
Eirin Beese – It was really interesting to hear both sides of the debate and it helped me to make up my mind when I was previously undecided
Connor MacaPhail – I had a clear idea what I would vote for and the debate was helpful in further strengthening my commitment to voting this way
