Chair of Aberdeenshire Council’s Education, Learning and Leisure Committee, Councillor Isobel Davidson, said: “There are a lot of great things going on across Education and Children’s Services and we are lucky that there are so many talented and enthusiastic people living and working in the area.

“I look forward to seeing this year’s nominations as they come in.”

Other categories include the Extra Mile Award for staff, Aberdeenshire’s STAR Award, Outstanding Leader of the Year Award, the Provost’s Award and the Director’s Award.
