AoS Development Officer for Scotland, Euan McArthur gave a talk to pupils from St Bernadette’s Primary School, Tullibody in the Diocese of Dunkeld.
They learnt about the lives of seafarers and the world of shipping and the work that seafarers’ charity Apostleship of the Sea (AoS) does providing spiritual, pastoral and welfare support to seafarers in need.
Euan who spoke at the school’s assembly on October 21 said: “The students asked some very thought-provoking questions about life working at sea. They were aware of the nearby port which is Grangemouth and listened attentively to the information.”
Nuala McElroy, Head Teacher at St Bernadette’s, thanked Euan for delivering the early-morning assembly.
Mrs McElroy said: “We are very grateful to Apostleship of the Sea for sharing with us their work as a charity. It makes you realise just how important seafarers are to our daily lives.”
