Lasswade Primary Scoops Awards

We are very proud to announce that Lasswade Primary pupils were multiple winners at the Inspire Aspire Awards. Mr Rae and Miss Singleton attended the awards ceremony at the Glasgow City Chambers last night – Tuesday 18th June – with three pupils who had received a special invitation.

We were delighted to discover our children were award winners

Charlotte Bowe (P7x) – 1st place across all Scottish schools and Best in School award.

Robbie Moody (P7y) – 2nd place across all Scottish schools.

Anna Page (P6y) – 3rd in the Primary 6 finalists award.

Inspire Aspire aids pupils to discover more about themselves and others to help define their own aspirations.

It is a unique programme for schools to help make the most of the teaching and learning opportunities from the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. Using a special poster template the Primary 6 pupils developed a personal plan of action inspired by the Olympic values and the character qualities demonstrated by Olympians and Paralympians.

The Inspire Aspire – Global Citizens in the Making project, encourages young people to look at their vision for the future using the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games as a focus and stimulus. The Primary 7 pupils looked at inspirational figures from the past and present and then used this to envisage their ‘vision for a better world’ to create their poster.
