Heart stoppingly breathtaking...

Forthview Gardening Club have entered the Royal Highland Show's Pallet competition this year for the first time. When they looked round all the other pallets, they were thinking of ideas for next year's entry. Mr Stobie and Miss Campbell were with them and told me that,

"Cameron suggested we do a miniature of Aung San Suu Kyi's house. How heart stoppingly tear jerking is that? "

Which just shows how deep Forthview children's understanding of Burma is. It's never far from their minds - even at the Royal Highland Show. Very proud of you Cameron.

They won a bronze medal too. Here is their entry. It's a replica of Forthview's Environmental Garden.

Archbishop Desmond Tutu and OUR BURMA BOOK

Alastair Greig from Edinburgh's Amnesty Burma Group gave a copy of OUR BURMA BOOK to Archbishop Desmond Tutu when he attended the Church of Scotland General Assembly this week. Archbishop Tutu has often spoken out in support of Aung San Suu Kyi.
If you want to speak a message to Aung San Suu Kyi, you can do. Speak 64 words to her on a new website set up to give messages of support to Aung San Suu Kyi on her 64th birthday on 19 June 2009.
