Nominations still sought for education awards

Aberdeenshire residents are being urged to submit nominations for the Scottish Education Awards 2014 before the deadline on February 21.

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, The Gordon Schools and Jan Murdoch from Ellon Academy both took home prizes from the Scottish Education Awards 2013.

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.
