Fox Covert RC is a denominational primary school in Edinburgh, Scotland. It aims to create an atmosphere which encompasses all the values of a Catholic School. The school web site is at http://www.foxcovertrcps.ik.org/ .

Fox Covert RC has supported Tong-Len from the outset. Staff and children sponsor a number of the Tong-Len children and help support one of the teachers in the tent school. In addition to this they have regular fundraising events to support Tong-Len's work.

The sister school, Fox Covert Non-Denominational Primary School, which shares the same location, has more recently joined in the support of Tong-Len, sometimes sharing fund raising events.

The children from these schools are able to correspond with the Tong-Len children by mail and email and have a video link to the hostels by Skype. The involvement with Tong-Len is an important part of their Global Citizen Curriculum.
