Hyslop Welcomes Business Links with Dechmont School


Fiona Hyslop has today (Monday, 19th Dec) visited Dechmont Infant School to highlight the work the school has done in connection with Energy Assets based at the Almondvale Business Park.

The pupils were asked to design a picture about what energy meant to them, the first second and third place pictures are hanging in the school’s offices. The P2 pupil that won first prize was invited to the official opening of the company and was awarded with his certificate and prize by Fergus Ewing, MSP for Enterprise, Energy and Tourism.

Commenting on the Day, Fiona Hyslop said,

“This has been a fantastic project for the pupils at Dechmont Infant School and it’s great to see first-hand the results that came from the competition.

“I am also pleased that Energy Assets wish to continue their work with the pupils and the school’s eco committee as they examine ways to reduce their carbon footprint in school as tacking climate change in schools is something pupils in West Lothian are no stranger to.”
