In 2019 I worked with the Educational Institute of Scotland on a very special project to illustrate a series of six booklets to welcome young people from migrant and refugee families to school in Scotland.
The Welcome Packs are specific to three age ranges and are designed to inform young people and their parents of their rights as pupils/students in Scottish education and to convey a positive, welcoming message to the young people about Scotland as their new home.
The booklets included in the packs aim to give newly arrived young people and their families some information about school education in Scotland, as well as some background about Scotland itself by way of introduction to the country.
The packs were launched at a special event, held at Hillhead High School in Glasgow and are distributed throughout schools across Scotland.
