A new campaign by the Scottish Government is encouraging parents or guardians to talk to children about their dreams for the future and share their ambitions either online on Scotland’s giant dream wall, or use the Future Me postbox at their local library. Entries have already started to flood in with teacher, builder, vet and footballer being extremely popular choices. Deputy First Minister and Cabinet Secretary for Education and Skills John Swinney said: “The Future Me campaign is about encouraging parents and carers to talk to their children about their ambitions for the future so they can start working to make these dreams a reality together.
This will not only help to raise aspirations, increase attainment and deliver better outcomes, it will also provide families with ideas they can do together to build essential lifelong skills which will benefit their children – whatever they decide to do.” The campaign is part of the wider Read, Write, Count initiative which aims to improve key numeracy and literacy skills among primary school children across Scotland.
