Rutherglen Reformer - - News - Staff re­porter

It was a busy end of term for Ruther­glen High School.

On Wed­nes­day, June 3, five se­nior pupils made their way to the Clyde Au­di­tio­r­ium for the Car­i­tas Award Cer­e­mony.

This award is pre­sented by the Scot­tish Catholic Ed­u­ca­tion Ser­vice (SCES) and is open to young peo­ple of all faiths.

The pupils and their fam­i­lies were joined by head­teacher Mrs Jan Allan, Dea­con Bill McMil­lan ( School Chap­lain), Fr. James O’Kane (St. Bride’s Cam­bus­lang) and staff from Ruther­glen High School to col­lect their award, along with 1100 young peo­ple from all over Scot­land.

The pupils had worked hard all year to achieve their award, en­gag­ing in acts of ser­vice within their school and in their faith com­mu­ni­ties. The award cer­e­mony was a proud mo­ment for pupils, fam­i­lies and all con­cerned with Ruther­glen High School.

And the school also hosted the ASN Sacra­men­tal Work­book Launch last month. This has been a pro­ject un­der­taken by teach­ers from South La­nark­shire Coun­cil and the Dio­cese of Mother­well Ed­u­ca­tion Depart­ment to de­velop work­books for pupils with ad­di­tional sup­port needs pre­par­ing for the sacra­ments of Rec­on­cil­i­a­tion, First Com­mu­nion and Con­fir­ma­tion.

Staff and pupils wel­comed Bishop Toal, Bishop of Mother­well, Mrs Ann Don­ald­son, head of in­clu­sion at South La­nark­shire Coun­cil and other in­vited guests in­clud­ing Fr Joseph Lap­pin, Di­rec­tor of Re­li­gious Ed­u­ca­tion for the Arch­dio­cese of Glas­gow, Coun­cil­lor Richard Tul­let, par­ents, head teach­ers and pupils from other schools in the com­mu­nity, lo­cal clergy and parish­ioners and rep­re­sen­ta­tives of other faith de­nom­i­na­tions. A short prayer ser­vice was led by Dea­con Bill McMil­lan, School Chap­lain, which in­volved prayers led by both Ruther­glen High School and Trin­ity High School.
