PUPILS at a primary school in Glasgow's East End are hoping to spread festive cheer in the run-up to Christmas as part of an "innovative" social enterprise. 

Youngsters at St Denis' Primary School have been organising hampers which will be won through raffles as well as Christmas gifts and games. 

Glasgow Times:

The school is currently engaged in the Social Enterprise Schools programme which helps young people step up and "create the change they want to see in the world". 

Earlier this year, children at St Denis' developed their pupil voice and enterprise group Team TALENT ('Talk About Love End Negative Thoughts').

The group has also been involved with the festivities providing their mindfulness products. 

Mrs Mackie, headteacher at St Denis' Primary School said: "Team TALENT supports the mental health and wellbeing of the children and young people in our school ensuring that our pupils have the skills and resources to support their feelings when they are agitated, angry or upset; this, in turn, allows the children to feel safe and supported in our school environment. 

"Strong and committed teacher leadership and pupil voice being at the heart of this young person's group ensures its continued success over many years." 

Neil McLean, CEO at Social Enterprise Academy added: "We are consistently inspired by the ideas that are developed by young people across Scotland as part of Social Enterprise Schools. 

"At this time of year, it is particularly important to allow pupils to create the positive changes they want to see within their community. 

"The St Denis' Primary School pupils involved in this year's festive enterprise have shown us how their bright and bold ideas can be turned into innovative and profitable social enterprises that really make a big difference."
