YOUNGSTERS’ lockdown superheroes have been recognised in Westminster.

Haddington Primary School pupils came up with a series of positive messages for the people they see as heroes.

Notes were created thanking NHS staff, emergency service workers, teachers and even friends and family for their efforts during lockdown.

The messages were then put on the railings outside the school.

The uplifting scheme caught the eye of East Lothian’s MP, Kenny MacAskill.

He tabled an Early Day Motion at Westminster, which mentions that the children, supported by Sally Murray, the school’s depute headteacher, “were tasked with writing uplifting messages of gratitude and creating artwork to these superheroes along the school railings for all to see”.

The SNP MP said: “It’s great to see the creativity and warmth from the children of Haddington Primary School.

“This has been a difficult time for many children across the county, so to see the school express its gratitude to those it rightly refers to as superheroes is especially meaningful.”

The Early Day Motion has received support from five fellow MPs.
