Scottish Education Awards 2011
The Scottish Education Awards celebrate the hard work and success which takes place in Scottish education. They recognise the achievements of people who dedicate their lives to children and young people and showcase the valuable work and innovation in Scottish classrooms.
Entry to the awards is open to all publicly funded schools, including secondary, primary, nursery and special schools. There is a wide variety of categories which are linked to the Curriculum for Excellence Programme and that also recognise the dedication and commitment of teaching staff and education supporters.
The winners of the Scottish Education Awards 2011 were announced at the awards ceremony on Tuesday 14 June at the Hilton Hotel, Glasgow.
Visit the website to find out more and become a fan of the awards on Facebook.
While St Andrew's Day and Burns' Night are the perfect occasions for schools to celebrate their own achievements and diversity, success can be celebrated at any time.
St Andrew's Day
St Andrew's Day provides a great opportunity every year for schools and pre-schools to celebrate all they have been learning about Scotland and its culture. For 2010, schools and pre-schools were encouraged to celebrate by entering a poster competition. Find out more.
