Praise for P7 pupil who helped save school trip

Resonance Capital and Skypark donate £2,000

A resourceful schoolgirl has saved the day for her classmates.

The school trip to Auchengillan Outdoor Centre looked uncertain for pupils at St Patrick’s Primary School due to rising costs.

But P7 pupil Ya Shi had the idea to write to local businesses asking for funding to meet the gap in costs.

Now the trip is going ahead thanks to a £2,000 donation from Resonance Capital and Skypark in Glasgow.

Michael Miley, teacher at St Patrick’s Primary School, said: “Our annual trip to Auchengillan Outdoor Centre is an opportunity for primary 7 pupils to enjoy activities, grow in confidence and cement friendships.

'Expensive'

“Unfortunately, with increased costs it has become much more expensive and became unaffordable.

“One of our pupils Ya Shi, had the idea of writing to local business to ask for help.

P7 pupil Ya Shi took it upon herself to write to local businesses.

“Thanks to Angela Higgins of Resonance Capital who donated £2000 which means a full class of 23 children can now take part.”

Both businesses were quick to praise the ‘ingenuity’ of Ya Shi and her letter-writing skills and persuasive manner.

Angela Higgins of Resonance Capital is Skypark’s strategic lettings advisor. Resonance Capital supports many charities.

She said: “Hats off to the letter writing ingenuity of Ya Shi of St Patrick’s Primary School, Glasgow.

Michael Miley

“Taking part at the Auchengillan Outdoor Centre is a wonderful opportunity for children to enjoy great activities.

“I am delighted that every pupil can be included in the trip and hope that everyone has a great experience!”

Resonance Capital is actively involved in the community with Glasgow’s Number 1 Baby & Family Support Service and Masks for Scotland.

Angela has raised over £40k for Cash for Kids and Finding Your Feet through fundraising events, and assisted in forming 50 new clubs, from cycling and skiing to wellbeing for amputees.
