That the Parliament congratulates the students of Springburn Academy on their oral history project, which looked at the history of Springburn and in particular the contribution to life in the area made by Springburn Park, including what it considers the park's iconic winter gardens; understands that they used rigorous methodology in assembling the material needed for the project, including interviewing people about their memories of the gardens in former times; commends the students on what it considers their excellent presentation at a recent meeting of the Winter Gardens Trust, and recognises the support and leadership offered by both Andy Clark of the University of Strathclyde's Scottish Oral History Centre and the school's staff.
