Schools of Cooperation Level 3

Hermitage Park Primary is the first school in Edinburgh to receive the level 3 Schools of Co-operation award. This award was given to us by the Co-Operative Education Trust Scotland (CETS) and was awarded after a presentation by the Pupil Council to Morag Pendry and Hugh Donnelly.


To become a school of co-operation we had to democratically select and implement a co-operatively led school project chosen by the pupils and show increased awareness of co-operative values and principles (caring for others; democracy; equality; honesty; openness; self-help; self-responsibility; social responsibility; solidarity).  We follow and promote these values in school and cover them in whole school house meetings every month.


We were delighted when Morag announced that we were awarded level 3.  We previously had a level one award and managed to bypass level two with our project.schools-of-coop
