Scottish Education Awards
|Don’t forget to make your nomination for the Scottish Education Awards
The Scottish Education Awards recognise individuals and establishments that have developed a vibrant and progressive quality of education and a climate of continuous innovation. Sheona Allen, Headteacher at Caledonia Primary School and winner of the 2013 Gaelic Awareness Award, said, ‘being a winner at the Scottish Education Awards allowed the whole school to celebrate and feel really proud of their enormous effort. The biggest buzz was arriving back to school with the award and seeing everyone outside cheering and punching the air’. For more information and to see the full list of categories, please visit the Scottish Education Awards website. Nominations can be made until Friday 21 February and the awards ceremony takes place on Tuesday 10 June.
