Cathkin High School re­cently held their an­nual se­nior awards cer­e­mony.

Coun­cil­lor Rus­sell Clearie at­tended and praised the pupils for their ef­forts aca­dem­i­cally.

The Dux award was won by Zahra En­ver who achieved an as­ton­ish­ing five A-grade Highers.

The Prox­ime Ac­ces­sit was pre­sented to Aneesa Sakan­dar.

The Cit­i­zen­ship Award was pre­sented to the S6 lead­er­ship group con­sist­ing of Tif­fany Whit­ton, Robyn Munn, Jor­dan McCabe, Char­lie McLeod and Cameron Breen for their fan­tas­tic in­put to school ac­tiv­i­ties.

Iain Robb was the win­ner of the Arthur Quaich in recog­ni­tion of his achieve­ments in the sciences. This award was kindly do­nated by a pre­vi­ous head teacher at Cathkin High School.

The Scott Fa­gan award is pre­sented ev­ery year in mem­ory of a pre­vi­ous pupil at Cathkin High School and the win­ner is a pupil who has over­come ad­ver­sity in their school years.

This year it was Cal­lum Daziel who has bat­tled through an ill­ness with op­ti­mism and hu­mour.

Linzi Cochrane was the suc­cess­ful win­ner of the Hazel Archibald Cre­ative and Aes­thetic Award for her fan­tas­tic achieve­ments in dance.

The John Liv­ing­stone award – in mem­ory of another pre­vi­ous head teacher at Cathkin High – is pre­sented an­nu­ally to a pupil who will ben­e­fit from sup­port in their next step at col­lege or univer­sity. This year’s re­cip­i­ent was Alexan­der Reid.

The Com­mu­nity award was won by four girls – Amy Hobbs, Emma Pri­est­ley, El­iz­a­beth Cochrane and Sha­nia Bryson – who won REACH Autism £3000 through their Youth Phi­lan­thropy Ini­tia­tive in fourth year.

The girls have, in their own time, helped out at the char­ity and have shown the com­mu­nity how pos­i­tive and hard work­ing Cathkin High School pupils are.

Mrs McNair, the school’s head teacher shared her ad­vice on fu­ture suc­cess and she used the fol­low­ing Mike Zim­mer­man quote:

“Suc­cess­ful peo­ple have one com­mon trait, it’s an ut­ter lack of cyn­i­cism. The world owes them noth­ing.”

She added: “I know that Cathkin High Pupils will con­tinue to be suc­cess­ful be­cause they are driven , they are most cer­tainly tal­ented and they will take con­trol of their des­tiny with a pos­i­tive can do at­ti­tude.”
