Search is on for East Lothian’s education stars
The search has started for East Lothian’s brightest education stars as local people nominate top teaching professionals and schools in the area for recognition at the Scottish Education Awards 2013.
The accolades, which celebrate hard work and innovation in Scottish classrooms, are now open for nominations after Cabinet Secretary for Education and Lifelong Learning Michael Russell launched the awards.
Mr Russell said: “It’s a great pleasure to once again be launching the Scottish Education Awards. These awards give us all an opportunity to recognise, share and celebrate the fantastic work that is going on in our schools and across the Scottish education sector. I hope schools, parents, pupils and teachers in East Lothian will be inspired to think about all of the great things that they are doing that could be shared with others through these awards.”
Councillor Shamin Akhtar, East Lothian Council cabinet member with responsibility for children’s wellbeing and education, added: “I am always impressed by the imagination and inspiration that is demonstrated by teaching professionals and the superb projects that are undertaken by pupils in the area.
“We are all very proud of the work that goes on in our schools and those efforts should be highlighted across the country. We would like to encourage local people to come forward and nominate their education stars for an accolade at the Scottish Education Awards 2013.”
