Harris Academy Prize Giving 2012


This morning, along with two of my councillor ward colleagues, other guests, pupils, staff and parents, I had the great pleasure of attending Harris Academy's Annual Prize Giving.

It was again a thoroughly enjoyable Prize Giving, with the school giving recognition to the many pupils who have achieved academically, in sport, and in other ways, over the past academic year.

This year's guest of honour was John Mitchell, who gave a very entertaining speech and Head Teacher, Jim Thewliss, gave a comprehensive update on school activities with plans over the next six years, which include major milestones such as the full implementation of Curriculum for Excellence and the school decant between 2013 and 2016 to the Rockwell site followed by the opening of the new Harris Academy building on Perth Road in August 2016.
