The youngsters have been 
giving people shielding from covid a lift with their ‘Little Notes of Kindness’ campaign

As part of the initiative which launched in October, pupils in Prep 1 to 4 have been busy writing letters to elderly residents at Milngavie Manor care home.

They have also been putting pen to paper for those in the Milngavie Friendship Circle – a local group set up for older people, who would normally meet once a week in Milngavie town hall.

Most recently, pupils wrote to Fiona Williamson, a member of the Friendship Circle, who has been shielding 
because of the coronavirus pandemic. 

Mrs Williamson said: “Receiving letters of kindness from the pupils truly did brighten my day. I’m even smiling as I think about it now.

 “Their cheerful and positive attitude makes you forget about the challenging circumstances we all face right 
now.

“I think that the Little Notes of Kindness campaign is an excellent example of how communities can come together to encourage hope and goodwill.

“The Milngavie Friendship Circle is an important part of our community which we 
will hopefully get to enjoy together again in the near 
future.

“In the meantime, kind 
gestures from pupils at The Glasgow Academy are incredibly important to help us all remain positive.

“The simple yet heart-warming notes of kindness will definitely bring joy to a number of residents in Milngavie.”
