Pupils recognised for outstanding achievements


THE University of the West of Scotland presented worthy pupils with Outstanding Achievement Awards recently. Secondary Schools across Dumfries and Galloway were once again given the opportunity to reward their senior pupils with a UWS Outstanding Achievement Award at their end of year awards ceremonies and Caroline Bell, Marketing Manager at UWS said: “As a University we are committed to raising aspirations and encouraging people of all ages to fulfil their potential. It is therefore highly relevant that we take the time to recognise the personal success of our young people in Dumfries and Galloway and the annual awards events and prize-givings in local secondary schools provide an ideal platform for UWS to do that.”

The following pupils received UWS Outstanding Achievement Awards during the school year 2010/11:

Beth MacQuarrie and Jenni Malloch shared the UWS award at Castle Douglas High School for their commitment and achievements in Music.

Ryan Broll picked up the UWS award at Douglas Ewart High School for his outstanding academic achievement in all of the subjects he studied at Higher Grade.
