Pupils from Isobel Mair School in Newton Mearns received a bumper boost at the end of last year, thanks to the school’s neighbour Bett Homes.

The housebuilder has donated £1,000, which will be used to build a new sensory room – a therapeutic space that will provide a safe and stimulating learning environment for children with special educational needs.

To say thank you, the pupils created two unique artworks, which they presented in the form of canvas prints to Sandra Lockhart of Bett Homes at the school’s assembly.

Bett Homes sales and marketing director, Theresa Barbour, said: “Our presence at Newton Heights means we really feel that we are a part of the community here and, when we found out that the school needed funding for their new sensory room, we were happy to step in and help.

“We were delighted to receive the artwork, and will hang the pieces with pride in our sales and marketing suite. There are obviously some very creative and talented children in Newton Mearns.”

Isobel Mair School provides specialist support for children with additional support needs.

The school takes a holistic approach to children’s development with a range of facilities including art and music.
