Power to the teachers

Click to zoom

Today the teachers were on strike, for the first time since the 80s.

Today I was running a very enjoyable sketching workshop in the Palace of Holyrood House and over the road I could see and hear the strike protest outside the Scottish Parliament.

I had a walk over to make my sketch and there was a lovely vibe as teachers from various schools held flags and home made banners asking for a pay rise and more up to date facilities.

My two kids are off today too, and I hope the teachers get what they want. They do an amazing job and in my opinion they, and the kids they teach and look after deserve all the help and support we can give them.

Find out more about the strike below, on the Educational Institute of Scotland website.
