SRP Schools’ Event a great success at IRPA13

For the last few months, our director Bob Kerr, has been on the working group helping to pull together the SRP Schools’ Event at the IRPA13 conference in the SECC in Glasgow this week.

Over 1200 school pupils from about 10% of Scottish secondary schools attended the event and feedback has been very positive.

The event could not have been a success without the teamwork of various SRP members and without the support of 28 exhibitors and the SECC.

Thank you to everyone who helped to make this a highly successful event.
