Thursday 13th September 2018
It was an opportunity for Lasswade’s many talented Senior students to be recognised for their dedication to the DREAM Values on Monday 10th September.
During what was a well-attended and busy programme of entertainment and awards, former Depute Head Teacher of Lasswade Fiona Wightman spoke to those in attendance about her own career, and the importance of dreaming about the future.
She encouraged pupils to make the most of the opportunities afforded to them at the school and said it was important to have the right character and attitude. She also suggested that it was crucial to never stop learning.
Students from S4 were recognised for their achievements across all subjects, with S4 Pupil, Chloe Lauder, receiving the Young Prize for Academic Excellence.
Charlotte Bowe and Mia-Hollins-Kirk received DREAM Awards in S5, and, in S6, a Senior Leadership Team of House Captains and School Captains were recognised by Head Teacher Campbell Hornell.
Entertainment was provided by S3-S6 Drama Students, Jack Whittaker on guitar and the Guitar Group.
Special Prizes were awarded to Jamie McGlone for Senior Musician of the Year, and Olivia Harris was chosen for the Head Teacher’s Award.
The Marshall Memorial Medal was awarded to Anna Blair.
Congratulations to all of the outstanding young people mentioned on the night.Tweet  Share on Facebook
