Douglas Ewart reach awards finals

Three Dumfries and Galloway schools have beaten off stiff competition from across Scotland to be selected as finalists at this year’s Scottish Education Awards.

Among them is Douglas Ewart High School which has been shortlisted for the Transforming Lives through Partnerships Award, and Cargenbridge Primary School for the Enterprise and Employability Across Learning (Primary and Early Years) Award. Finalists will attend an awards ceremony in Glasgow on 8th June where judges will reveal the winners of each category.

People in Dumfries and Galloway are being thanked for nominating their local schools, nurseries and individuals for the Scottish Education Awards 2016 so their achievements can be recognised.

The Scottish Education Awards recognise and reward the people who dedicate their lives to children and young people and showcase the valuable work and innovation happening in classrooms across the country.

The awards celebrate the dedication of staff who go the extra mile.
