LOCHY­SIDE pupils’ re­ceived recog­ni­tion for their faith and com­mit­ment after 18 months of hard work.

22 stu­dents were handed their Pope Fran­cis Faith Awards at their end of year assem­bly last week.

The pro­gramme was set up by the Bish­ops of Scot­land three years ago en­cour­ag­ing young­sters to show their faith in their daily ac­tions at school, at home and in their parish com­mu­nity.

Vi­o­let Smith, head teacher, ex­plained: ‘The chil­dren have been work­ing on their faith awards over a pe­riod of 18 months. They main­tain a port­fo­lio of ev­i­dence dur­ing the course of the pro­gramme, and this is as­sessed by a panel of peo­ple from the Scot­tish Catholic Ed­u­ca­tion Ser­vice.

Eight of the chil­dren also re­ceived a Parish Com­men­da­tion which re­flects the work that they have done through their in­volve­ment with their parish of St. John’s. This in­cludes par­tic­i­pat­ing in church ser­vices, fundrais­ing for char­i­ties
