Our Sixth Years have been presented with Saltire Awards for volunteering to help S1 pupils during their transition from primary school, especially during the induction week in June. The award recognises the support Sixth Years gave the new pupils including, guiding them around the school building, helping at breaks and lunchtimes and generally ensuring that everyone felt safe and included in the school. Everyone worked really hard and gave time and thought to this volunteering role.
Thanks to Claire at Voluntary Action Lochaber and Mrs Clark and Mrs MacAllister from the school for organising this volunteering opportunity. Many of the Sixth Years are now continuing their volunteering through a paired reading scheme organised by Mrs Dent.
‘Saltire Awards’ is the Scottish Government’s national youth volunteer awards. They celebrate, recognise and reward the commitment, contribution and achievements of young volunteers in Scotland, aged between 12 and 25.
