Seasonal greetings focus on party fun during card launch
Children from an Edinburgh primary school played a central part in First Minister Nicola Sturgeon Christmas video message this year.
The eight-year-olds from Forthview Primary have a starring role as they join in with the First Minister wishing everyone a very lively “Merry Christmas!”
The film was made at a children’s Christmas party hosted by the First Minister earlier this month and shows the children and the First Minister enjoying the festive fun.
First Minister Nicola Sturgeon said:
“The sound of excited children ringing round Bute House was a wonderful experience and there was no better opportunity to join in with them to wish everyone a very happy Christmas.”
The film includes some behind-the-scenes footage taken on the steps of the First Minister’s official residence Bute House during the launch of the First Minister’s charity Christmas card which this year features the much-loved children’s book character Katie Morag drawn by celebrated writer and illustrator Mairi Hedderwick.
