Blue Peter at local primary school

Today Blue Peter visited James Gillespies Primary School to prepare for the launch of the latest Blue Peter appeal for Operation Smile. The appeal is to fund operations in India for children born with a cleft palate or cleft lip.

The Blue Peter team are back on Friday to finish the filming at Edinburgh Castle. JGPS was selected for the launch after their successful contribution to a BBC News 24 visit in September to mark the back to school period after the summer.
