A non uniform day at St Mary Magdalene's RC Primary, where everyone wore something green and donated £1, was just part of the 'Go Green' climate related fund raising challenge.

The challenge was sent out by the charity Catholic Agency for Overseas Development (CAFOD) leading up to the 2021 United Nations Climate Change conference.

Pupils have been been learning in school assemblies about how world leaders are meeting in Glasgow for crucial talks about the climate crisis and the future of the planet and its people.
