On Monday the 22 April, Loudoun Academy were presented with their plaque at an awards ceremony attended by parents, students, partners, The Director of Education Services as well as the Provost, to mark them becoming Scotland’s first School of Co-operation.
It was a very co-operative event as the school was also giving awards to over 60 students who had volunteered up to 300 hours each in their local community!
LACE – the Young Co-operative in the school, also gave an excellent presentation about their business. They explained what it meant to them to be a young co-operative and how the values and principles shaped their business, as well as what they were doing to help others with their profits.
All the students’ presentation were very articulate and entertaining and an excellent time was had by all. Many thanks and congratulations to everyone who made this event such a success!
