Deadline to nominate education stars looms (10/02/12)
People in the Highlands are being urged to enter their local schools, nurseries or individuals into the Scottish Education Awards 2012 so that their exceptional achievements can be recognised. The deadline for submissions is Friday 2 March 2012.
The awards, which celebrate the achievements of schools and teachers across Scotland, have attracted hundreds of nominations so far but many more schools and individuals are worthy of acknowledgment.
Councillor Bill Fernie, Chairman of The Highland Council’s Education, Culture and Sport Committee urged parents, pupils and local communities throughout the Highlands to nominate their unsung heroes in local teaching, he said: “I know that we have fantastic staff and outstanding individuals working in our schools, and I hope to see many nominations across the Highlands.”
The Scottish Education Awards are open to all publicly funded schools, including secondary, primary, nursery and special schools. There are also categories to recognise and reward the dedication of teachers, head-teachers and support staff across the country.
Nominations are currently being invited from across all 17 categories including Teacher of the Year, Global Citizenship, Literacy and Numeracy across Learning and Sustainable Schools.
