A Denny High School pupil has been selected as one of Scotland’s Young Ambassadors for Inclusion.
Thomas Valentine has been chosen to represent Falkirk as part of the new programme developed by Education Scotland.
Through the programme, young people who face barriers to education will be given a voice at a national level to help make a significant impact in raising awareness of the issues around additional support needs and inclusive education.
Thomas said: “I am delighted to have been appointed a Young Ambassador and look forward to playing a part in helping others overcome obstacles to education.”
Minister for Learning, Sciences and Scotland’s Languages, Dr Alasdair Allan, said: “This is a great opportunity for young people to make a difference to how additional support for learning teaching is delivered across the country.”
