Vote 100 Exhibition officially launched

Midlothian View - Tue, 11/12/2018 - 16:58

P7 pupils from Kings Park (Green) and Woodburn (Red) Primary Schools with Councillor Russell.

Art work by Midlothian school children to commemorate one hundred years of women getting the vote is part of an exhibition launched at Dalkeith Library this week.

The exhibition titled ‘Vote 100’ was commissioned by Councillor Margot Russell to involve young people in the 100 year celebration of women over 30 getting the vote. She approached pupils from King’s Park and Woodburn Primary Schools to paint some scenes related to the Dalkeith area where the suffragettes had meetings.

St Mary’s Church was of particular interest as it was nearly bombed by the suffragettes because the church belonged to the Duke of Buccleuch who opposed women getting the vote.

Over 40 works were submitted for the exhibition and the best work from each school was selected for a prize.

The winners were primary 7 pupils Murdo Jack from King’s Park Primary School and Amy Robb from Woodburn Primary. They both won a pass for a family of 4 to the Fort Douglas Adventure Play Park in Dalkeith Country Park. These were donated by the Estate Manager at the Restoration Yard in the Park. All the other pupils who took part received chocolate selection boxes from the Depute Provost.

Depute Provost Cllr Margot Russell said:

“I’m very impressed with the enthusiastic way in which the primary 7 pupils approached this art project. It is important to get young people involved in projects of this kind. They were very interested in the history of the suffragettes and their actions in Dalkeith. I would like to thank Dalkeith History Museum for donating Midlothian Advertiser press cuttings from the time for this exhibition.”

The Exhibition will run until Friday 11 January 2019.
