St Constantine's Primary School, based on Drumoyne Road, has partnered with metal recycler, EMR, to increase its educational offering.
EMR, which has two sites in the city, based on Kings Inch Drive and South Street, has provided a £3,500 donation to benefit the school's 306 pupils. This will allow the school to purchase equipment to enable young people to take part in activities, as well installing bin systems to teach pupils about the importance of recycling. The site also offered a guided tour of its newest site, EMR Glasgow KGV, to further their knowledge on recycling.
St Constantine’s, which supports children and families across Glasgow, aims to create a welcoming and friendly environment, as well as being a champion for diversity in the community. They want all children to feel safe and valued, and strive to help them to achieve their full potential. To do this they include families, and the community, in child education.
Gary Barrett, Area General Manager of EMR’s Scottish sites commented on the partnership:
“At EMR, teaching younger generations about the importance of recycling and the environment is something that we are very passionate about, and so we are happy to be able to support the team at St Constantine’s Primary School.
“Laura and the team of dedicated teaching staff are passionate about offering the highest standard of education to young people and I am delighted that we can support their vital work through this partnership.”
Launched in 2020, EMR’s Young Futures Reimagined initiative aims to support young people across the country to build bright futures. Thus far, EMR has supported over 40 causes across the UK.
Laura Notman, teacher at St Constantine’s Primary School shared her delight on collaborating with EMR:
“A huge thanks to Gary and the team at EMR for their fantastic support for St Constantine’s. Their very generous donation will go a long way to help our school achieve its goal of becoming more sustainable.
“This donation will be used to purchase recycling bins to be used throughout the school and extend our outdoor learning resources, helping our pupils enjoy a more sustainable and healthy future.”
