Campaigners take bid to save schools to Holyrood

SAVE Our School campaigners took their fight to Holyrood today.

A bus-load of parents from Pollok and Carnwadric travelled to Parliament to hand over a 2000-signature petition.

They also staged a demonstration in a bid to persuade the First Minister to hold an inquiry into Glasgow City Council's pre-12 education consultation.

Protesters are angry at the closures of St Edmund's Primary in Pollok and Carnwadric Primary.

Susan Green, 41, whose daughter Erin is in P6 at St Edmund's, said: "We still feel strongly that feelings in the community have been ignored."

The protest coincides with today's stage one debate on the Scottish Schools (Par-ental Involvement) Bill.

Last month, St Edmund's parents removed their kids from the school one afternoon in protest. That same week, Carnwadric parents staged an all-night sit-in.

Last week world famous psychic Uri Geller backed parents in their fight.

Uri, who shot to fame in the 1970s by using mindpower to bend spoons, is supporting the bid to stop the new school being built near a mobile phone mast.

Carnwadric and Arden primaries are to be merged at a new 360-pupil school in Arden just a few hundred yards from a mast.

Uri told the Evening Times: "It is outrageous. I certainly wouldn't build a school near a mast."

Meanwhile, parents at St Edmund's in Pollok hope to enlist a multi-millionaire entrepreneur. Tycoon Paul Green, whose firm Retail Property Holdings is behind the massive new Silverburn shopping complex, has been urged to back their fight.
