PUPILS at Rosneath Primary School are set to benefit from a donation of £1,000 by a local housing association.

Rosneath is one of eight schools across Argyll and Bute to receive money from the ‘10 10 10’ initiative set up by Argyll Community Housing Association (ACHA).

The initiative was launched in November 2016 to mark ACHA’s 10 years as a housing association with a 10-year bequest of up to £10,000 per year to support projects and initiatives in Argyll and Bute schools.

The awards have been made to support a number of different initiatives such as provision of interactive smart boards, running an after school club, outdoor learning area enhancement, swimming lessons and nurture room kitchen facilities

Alastair MacGregor, ACHA’s chief executive, said: “It is really heartening from ACHA’s perspective to see take up from school pupils projects tying in with the 10 10 10 initiative.”

Douglas Hendry, Argyll and Bute Council’s executive director of customer services, added: “Schools are vital to the success and development of communities and young people across Argyll and Bute and it is great to see ACHA engaging with the council’s education service in such a positive way.”

The other schools to receive money from the fund are located in Cowal, Dunoon, Oban, Lorn and Kintyre.
