Historic club honours top pupils

-

Cortachy Castle was the setting for a celebratio­n of excellence involving young people from Angus and Dundee.

On Saturday, the historical house hosted the annual awards presentati­on of the Edinburgh Angus Club, welcoming pupils, their families and staff from schools throughout the area.

The club was founded in 1840, and instituted in 1841 with the aim of ‘encouragin­g friendly intercours­e among the members and the advancemen­t of education in Angus’.

It now has more than 250 members and awards prizes based on outstandin­g academic and personal merit to senior pupils at Angus secondary schools, as well as Dundee High School and Harris, Morgan and Grove Academies.
