En­tries sought for school awards

Rutherglen Reformer - - News - Dou­glas Dickie

Peo­ple in Ruther­glen and Cam­bus­lang are be­ing urged to make sure schools and teach­ing pro­fes­sion­als who go the ex­tra mile are recog­nised.

Nom­i­na­tions are now open for the Scot­tish Ed­u­ca­tion Awards 2017.

And deputy first min­is­ter John Swin­ney is keen for lo­cals to get in­volved. He said: “There is great strength in Scot­tish ed­u­ca­tion, with teach­ers, par­ents, pupils and com­mu­nity part­ners work­ing hard to en­sure that all chil­dren and young peo­ple have equal chances to reach their full po­ten­tial.

“I am there­fore de­lighted to launch the Scot­tish Ed­u­ca­tion Awards 2017 which help us show­case and cel­e­brate this im­por­tant work that is hap­pen­ing across the coun­try.”

There is a wide va­ri­ety of award cat­e­gories and en­try is open to all pub­licly-funded schools in­clud­ing pri­mary, sec­ondary, nurs­ery and spe­cial schools.

Nom­i­na­tions close on Fe­bru­ary 15 and the win­ners will be an­nounced at an awards cer­e­mony in Glas­gow next June.
