First year pupils at Peterhead Academy have been making cards and gifts for refugees from Ukraine.

Aberdeenshire’s resettlement team will then share these with new arrivals in Scotland, and the school hopes they will help make a difference – and raise a smile after such a tough time.

The project has also helped pupils learn about what it would be like to be a refugee and to celebrate equality and diversity.

Included inside the packs are cards, cookies and toys. Supplied by Aberdeenshire Council.

The gift bag consists of a wooden robot toy that comes with its very own birth certificate created in technical class.

The two shortbread biscuits were baked in home economics classes.

A handmade card was created in art with a message in Ukrainian that pupils wrote in modern languages.

A representative from Scotland Supporting Ukraine collected the bags for distribution today.

Peterhead Academy head teacher Shona Sellers said: “We hope this small gesture will help Ukrainian children and young people arriving in Aberdeenshire feel welcomed.

“It is an important learning opportunity for our young people and they are really pleased to be making a difference to our wider community.”
