Last chance to nominate education stars

People in Edinburgh are being urged to submit nominations for the Scottish Education Awards 2014 before the deadline on Friday 21 February 2014.

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.

Last year, Prospect Bank School won the Learning Through Technology Award at the Scottish Education Awards 2013.

Councillor Paul Godzik, City of Edinburgh Council Education Convener, said: “We have a wealth of talented teachers working in great schools in the capital which was shown last year by Prospect Bank School winning one of the top awards and Edinburgh having three other finalists.

“Each school has its own projects and successes involving both pupils and teachers and it would be great for as many of these to be recognised nationally at this year’s Scottish Education Awards.  I would encourage people in Edinburgh to come forward and nominate the people, schools and projects that have made a difference to education in their local communities.”

The 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 Scotland.
