Rutherglen Reformer - - Gossip Girl - Staff re­porter

Par­ents and car­ers are be­ing urged to make sure schools and teach­ing pro­fes­sion­als who go the ex­tra mile are recog­nised for their work.

Nom­i­na­tions are open for the Scot­tish Ed­u­ca­tion Awards and deputy first min­is­ter John Swin­ney is keen for lo­cals to get in­volved.

He said: “There is great strength in Scot­tish ed­u­ca­tion, with teach­ers, par­ent s, pupils and com­mu­nity par t n e r s work­ing hard to en­sure that all chil­dren and young peo­ple have equal chances to reach their full po­ten­tial.”

There is a wide va­ri­ety of award cat­e­gories which recog­nise and re­ward the ded­i­ca­tion of teach­ing staff and ed­u­ca­tional sup­port­ers.

En­try is open to all pub­liclyfunded 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.
